In the Book In the Movie
   Bard was a captain of the archers. Bard was a lowly barge driver.
   The dwarves were held captive for one or two weeks in different parts of the elves palace. Thorin was hidden deep and far from the rest and was the last rescued. The dwarves are held captive for a day or two, all close by each other. Bilbo rescues Thorin first.
   Thranuil and other elves, leave the palace to go hunting, feasting or on business while the dwarves are captives. Thranuil locked down the palace and allowed no one to leave except by his permission.
   The secret entrance was hidden and a barely recognizable trail led to it. The "secret" entrance was within a sculpted dwarven statue with elaborate steps leading up to it.
   While Bilbo packs the dwarves into the barrels, the elves are the ones who release the barrels into the river. Bilbo releases the barrels into the river.
