When Lucy meets Mr. Tumnus the faun, he plays music for her on a funny-looking Narnian instrument. The actual sound heard is produced by the duduk (doudouk, düdük), a traditional Armenian wind instrument, famously featured in Sergei Parajanov's The Color of Pomegranates (1969) as well as Parajanov: The Last Spring (1992); the use of the duduk has become almost a tradition in Hollywood blockbusters. The instrument that Mr. Tumnus uses on set is actually a figment of the prop department's imagination. In the book Tumnus plays, as a faun, a Pan's flute. It's an instrument which is very difficult to play or even to mime playing. See more »

Even though moments of terror make it hard to observe rules, it was precisely this terror that made Londoners obey the rules so strictly. See more »
