According to Deagol's website (info from A Descriptive Bibliography, p. 386), the magazine Show Vol.1 No.1. January 1970 includes excerpts from an interview with Tolkien (in Philip Norman's article "Lord of the Flicks").

Trying to find a copy for sale of this publication, I discovered this listing on Amazon.com. Being cautious I asked a seller if Norman's article was included but got a negative answer. Am I just looking at a similarly entitled magazine?

I don't know about 'Lord of the Flicks', but a (legitimate)copy of Philip Norman's 'The Prevalence of Hobbits' may be found here (along with much other good stuff).

http://www.nytimes.com/specials/advertising/movies/tolkien/

here's a quote from the Norman article -

At Headington, near Oxford United soccer ground, Tolkien has a study in his garage. Dark-topped tobacco tins are left like markers along his shelves; and there is a good view of the rockets if some college beanfest explodes them. "I run to the window," Tolkien confesses, "every time I hear a whoosh."

Morgan,

I still think this might be the right magazine. I have a photocopy of the interview from pg. 29 in Show (I requested a copy from ILL when I was writing my M.A. thesis) and the interview is simply titled "FROM LONDON" in large bold font with "Lord of the Flicks" in very small font. No author is stated. I imagine the seller simply didn't notice this.

I will be purchasing one of those copies of Show on Amazon (as I think it is worth a gamble), but I'll wait to allow you to have first choice as you found this.

Let me know ASAP if you are going to buy one.

Josh

And Deagol will finally have that missing picture for his website. :)

By the way, I don't know if I ever told you, Deagol, but your website is so helpful--I use it all the time before making purchases.
