Hobbit review from 1938

This is so fascinating! Thank you to yeoldenews.tumblr.com for digging up this old Hobbit review from The Frederick Post on March 17, 1938:

“The Hobbit is humorous and original; and packed from cover to cover with hair-raising thrills and magic,” says Olive Roberts Barton. Do you think she had any idea, now on the 75th anniversary of the book, that it would be turned into one of the most anticipated feature films of all-time?

Do you agree with Barton’s take?
