Rare Film Of J.R.R. Tolkien

The blog Between Two Worlds posted a link to this rare footage of J.R.R. Tolkien smoking his pipe, drinking English ale, and talking about his writing. It appears to be the 1960s. Those of you who have read Tolkien will love it. The footage shows Tolkien at Oxford, where he taught for decades. I was there last summer, so all of this has special meaning. Would love your comments.

Enjoy!
