Lolita

Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1962. Original US three-sheet poster for the 1962 film. An iconic image for an iconic film.

Kubrick's rendition of Nabokov's masterpiece is legendary in its own right, a work that stands ten feet above the rhetoric later raised by Nabokov's son and the resulting forgettable 1997 remake. Kubrick's carefully crafted film preserves the mystery, tragedy, and humor of Nabokov's source material, while adding a level of its own perversion--notably with its portrayal of Claire Quilty, represented in a performance by Peter Sellers that according to some sources was mostly improvised. And who could ever best Shelley Winters as Lolita's grasping mother, or James Mason as the long-suffering Humbert? 41 x 81 inches, linen-backed. Near Fine.
