SUE LYON IN STANLEY KUBRICK'S 'LOLITA' WITH JAMES MASON

Sue Lyon as Lolita in Stanley Kubrick's classy classic exploitation of LOLITA Year: 1962
Between Stanley Kubrick's financial gig as glorified cameraman for Kirk Douglas's SPARTACUS and what's considered a groundbreaking dark comedy DR. STRANGELOVE is the subtle yet brilliant LOLITA, perhaps his most conventionally filmed and least visually offbeat since the storyline takes care of all that...

Middle-aged British college professor James Mason falls hard for Sue Lyon in the title role, whose mother, Shelley Winters, rules the first act, running around a suburban East Coast dream house, more frantically smitten with Mason's Humbert than he surreptitiously lusts for her young-teen daughter, whose beauty alone is seduction...

Lyon, with full lips just evolved from a playfully puffy, baby-face scowl, has wide yet sharpened eyes guiding this literal performance of a lifetime as she'd quickly age/experience thereafter: a sensually timeless time-capsule of devilish chaste enveloped in what's Kubrick's very own sporadic road movie...

Wherein lurks hilariously shady antagonist Peter Sellers who, like in STRANGELOVE, portrays a number of roles but in one man... playwright Clare Quilty... out to snake the girl from her desperate step dad, whose guilt, greed, vengeance and rage has already overpowered him during a framed prologue showdown between Brits: making Lyon's LOLITA not only the anticipated lead, but what everything leads to, means, and completely matters throughout.
