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."

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?

Well, after a few months of extending my book collection fairly regularly with lots of fairly cheap (but rewarding) additions, I am now officially "completely skint" on account of buying myself a new Lotus Exige 240 S. It is a very, very silly and impractical car which has somewhat dented my savings, so I'll be enjoying other peoples' book purchases through this forum for a while, rather than actually buying any books myself!

Gotta love a mid-life crisis :). Roll on next week when I get to pick up the car!

I have seen all kinds of descriptions of 120 wonderful years since the Professor was born, but surely today would not be his Eleventy-tenth birthday but his twelvety birthday

Happy Birthday
