Stanley Kubrick's version of Vladimir Nabokov's sensational novel is one of film's black comic masterpieces. James Mason stars as the licentious Humbert Humbert, a middle-aged professor obsessively enamored of the nymphet Lolita (Sue Lyon) and bedeviled by his chief adversary, the protean Clare Quilty (Peter Sellers in perhaps his greatest role). Shelley Winters co-stars as Lolita's sex-starved mom, a widow in full bloom.
