Movie-A-Day #230: Lolita (1962).
Vladamir Nabakov’s classic (but shocking) novel “Lolita” was first published in the United States on this day in 1958. Stanley Kubrick’s 1962 adaptation is the best of the two film versions (the other came out in 1997), probably because Nabakov himself wrote the screenplay as well. Plus, hey, it’s Stanley Kubrick. The man was a genius.
