DescriptionLolita (MGM, 1980s). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Reproduction French Grande (47.25" X 63") Roger Soubie Artwork.
Stanley Kubrick directs this brilliant adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's classic novel. James Mason, as disturbed Professor Humbert Humbert, is infatuated with 15-year-old nymphet Lolita (Sue Lyon), whose flighty mother is wonderfully played by Shelly Winters. The film caused unending controversy (as did the novel) despite the major changes Kubrick was forced to make by the censors, but it remains a powerful and well-crafted piece of cinema. Reproduced from the original stone litho plates of the first release French grande, this poster is backed on linen with no touchup applied. It has slight edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, pinholes, and small tears. There are unobtrusive stains and faint foxing into the interior. The linen has been trimmed to the border and extends slightly into the poster in a couple of places.
Estimate: $300 - $600.
