A letter from Joy Hill (of George Allen & Unwin) includes an extract from a letter sent by Tolkien discussing a film adaption of The Lord of the Rings. See page 67.

Rather prophetically he wrote "No film nor any 'version' in another medium could appear satisfactory to any devoted and attentive reader. On the other hand some of the greater pictorial and dramatic scenes could, with modern resources, be a moving experience."
