I convinced myself that, film Treebeard bore a resemblance to the Professor. Has this been mentioned before?

I don't know, Estë. I know that when I was following TORc's super "M00bies reads the b00ks", someone brilliant discussing the Fangorn chapter noted that Treebeard (and all the Ents?) was a philologist, always interested in and meditating on language and words--their formation and origin, and the power of naming, all subjects dear to the Professor's heart and mind.

But you're right. One can almost picture the Treebeard designed for the films smoking a pipe like "Ronald's".

Thanks so much for posting, Estë!
