Thanks for the second reference to "beaks and feathers", there was something in the back of my mind but I couldn't find anything. That second mention seems like too close to the mark to be completely coincidence, in my mind. I don't feel like a book review in Newsweek would have such a large impact years later, though it is certainly possible. Perhaps there is something deeper going on that bears investigating further.


No, I was not suggesting that the illustrator read the review before drawing the cartoon, I think the illustrator read the book and used his imagination to draw the picture of what an Orc looked like.

Though I do think, that in 1958, the review and illustration from the 1954 Newsweek may have impacted the first film treatise of the book.

I also think that Zimmerman looked at whatever was available about the book when developing the first film treatise and this would have included US published reviews.

Thanks Trotter. I am following up this idea further with a few investigative threads elsewhere to see what this new discovery might shake out. More to come, hopefully!
