Did You Know?
- Close to 800 girls auditioned for the part of Lolita Haze.
- When Humbert and Charlotte discuss sending Lolita to the girls camp, Charlotte holds a lit cigarette in a cigarette holder in her left hand in the shots facing Humbert. When the shots face Charlotte, there is no cigarette in either hand and no smoke. This changes back and forth as the shots change between the two characters.
- Humbert Humbert: You know, I've missed you terribly.
- Lolita Haze: I haven't missed you. In fact, I've been revoltingly unfaithful to you.
- Humbert Humbert: Oh?
- Lolita Haze: But it doesn't matter a bit, because you've stopped caring anyway.
- Humbert Humbert: What makes you say I've stopped caring for you?
- Lolita Haze: Well, you haven't even kissed me yet, have you?

Brilliant adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's 20th Century comic-erotic classic. [08 Jul 2005, p.C2]
Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of the Vladimir Nabokov classic isn't as racy as the new one by Adrian Lyne, which opens in theaters tomorrow. But it's a lot funnier, thanks in no small part to the casting of Peter Sellers as a mystery man of many accents and Shelley Winters as Lolita's silly mother. [01 Oct 1998]
Although it is often seen as a precursor to the multiple parts played in Dr Strangelove, Sellers' turn here is a reminder of his true potential, soon to be swallowed up by a stream of ever more awful Pink Panther films.
