An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

Stanley Kubrick's Lolita, the classic 1962 Stanley Kubrick English/U.S. tale-of-a-middle-aged-man-obsessed-with-a-teenage-girl melodrama ("How did they ever make a movie of Lolita?"; "aged for the movie due to censorship problems!"; "For persons over 18 years of age"; "Screenplay by Vladimir Nabokov based on his novel 'Lolita'"; it is very rare for a writer of a great work of literature to also write the screenplay) starring James Mason (as Professor Humbert Humbert), Shelley Winters (as Charlotte Haze), Peter Sellers ("as Quilty"), Sue Lyon (in the title role; billed as "Introducing Sue Lyon as 'Lolita'"), and Gary Cockrell. Note that there was no way in 1962 that Stanley Kubrick could have had a 12 year old girl play Lolita (as she was in Nabokov's novel). So instead he cast Sue Lyon, who was just shy of 16 when the movie was released, and that certainly changed aspects of the novel. The movie was remade in 1997 with Dominique Swain, who was just shy of 17 when the movie was filmed, and it is a virtual certainty that there will never be a movie based on it with an actual 12 year old girl.

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had tiny paper loss at the top two crossfolds and fine surface paper loss on parts of the foldlines. It had a few tears, pinholes, and tiny paper loss in the borders. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was not that well backed, and no excess linen was left, and the poster is now "lifting" from the linen in several places around the edges, and there are now some small tears that likely were added after the poster was backed. If I owned this poster, I would surely have it removed from the linen and properly re-backed, but bear this in mind before placing a bid on this poster.
