for the love of 'lo'
it is possible to make a good film based on a great book. in the case of 'Lolita', the film had some of the most memorable acting ever. imagine if the author took his ball home after the first rejections came pouring in.
'One rejection letter even went so far as to inform the author, “It is overwhelmingly nauseating, even to an enlightened Freudian. To the public, it will be revolting. It will not sell, and will do immeasurable harm to a growing reputation… I recommend that it be buried under a stone for a thousand years.”'
