Lolita

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1962. Vintage oversize borderless reference photograph of director Stanley Kubrick and cinematographer Oswald Morris on the set of the 1962 film. With holograph annotations on the verso regarding layout.

A stunning photo of both Kubrick and legendary cinematographer Morris, the latter whose achievements apart from "Lolita" include "Oliver Twist (1948), "Moulin Rouge" (1952), "Moby Dick" (1956), "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold", "Fiddler on the Roof" (1971), and "The Man Who Would Be King" (1975).

Kubrick's controversial adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's 1955 masterpiece, an inimitable, mysterious fairy tale wherein a lurking larger-than-life monster (Peter Sellers' Clair Quilty) vies with slick but unwitting college professor Humbert Humbert for the affections of a starry-eyed prepubescent Dolores "Lolita" Haze.

Shot on location in Albany and the Adirondacks in New York; Newport and Westerly, Rhode Island; and Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, England.

14 x 10.5 inches. Very Good plus, with light wear and a shallow crease along the right edge.
