Nabokovians might wish to know that the projected
new film of LOLITA was the subject of a two-page
spread in the London MAIL ON SUNDAY (right-wing
trashy tabloid) a couple of weeks ago.

The feature centred upon the fact that Sue Lyon,
the teen actress of the Kubrick version, had
gone on after the film to a downhill career which
ended in drugs, depression and worse - but now she
was a normal mature woman, happy with her seventeenth
husband.

"Will the same fate befall the new actress tipped for
the role?" - they rhetorically asked, complete with
half-page pic of a nymphet who would have sent HH
across north America and back for a glimpse of her
'potential'.
