Schiff/Lyne Lo in The Economist (fwd)
From: Stephen Blackwell <sblackwe@utk.edu>

The Oct 11 issue of THE ECONOMIST includes an article on Lyne's LOLITA in
Europe and its American prospects ("...film-industry insiders are now
confidently predicting that "Lolita" will find a distributor in the United
States"). Article's title: "Babylon can be a hard sell," p. 108. The
article includes a telling (but not revealing) still of Irons and Swain.
The page 19 "leader" on self-censorship in the US and the UK also mentions
the movie.
