The Back Cover of the Silmarillion--Sacrilege

The picture of JRRT on the back cover of the Silmarillion, original USA edition, looks exactly like:

Alastair Sim in "A Christmas Carol" down to his hand in his watch fob pocket. This is the scene where Scrooge and Marley are patiently sitting around the conference table waiting to buy out the nearly bankrupt company that will make their fortunes. Scrooge looks a little more upbeat than JRRT and his hair is a bit longer.

My original hardback fell apart & I'm on about my 4th or 5th paperback.
Got the bigger one this time.
