i have loved 'lolita' forever. i have read the book many times. i know by heart all the dialogue of stanley kubrick's 1962 film. i even sat down and patiently watched adrian lyne's 1997 version, cause i am loyal to jeremy irons. with all the attention i have given to this nymphet, two things i did not know till now:

the genius playwright harold pinter worked on the remake but chose to be uncredited.

it really is the actress sue lyon in the iconic color image.
