After finishing the "History of LOTR"-part of "The History of Middle-Earth", I have a feeling the "LOTR"-films made a surprising amount of changes in line with ideas discarded by Tolkien.

I have not read that, so I would not know, but I did notice that they made a lot of changes based on things the text said didn't happen.

For two small examples, the Hobbiton children hoping for fireworks from Gandalf upon his arrival were disappointed. And Strider tells the hobbits that they will not have time for hunting, and must tighten their belts and continue on to Rivendell. In the films, both things happen!

The bit about the Elves leaving in the unpublished epilogue (from "Sauron Defeated") is some of the saddest things I've read.
