FILM SCREENPLAY Nabokov’s Lolita script






SCREENPLAY NABOKOV Lolita [sample]




SCREENPLAY NABOKOV Lolita [sample 2]




O.K., hands up who knew Nabokov had written a screenplay for his novel Lolita?


All explained at Open Culture. Here, 2 of the set of 5 pages included there. Left them larger than I normally would do for a header graphic for ease of reading. Interestingly, Kubrick credited Nabokov as screenwriter even though he hardly used it.


Lolita: A Screenplay has been published by Vintage. Don’t know about you, but its used hardback for me. Screenplays in paperback are not the best bet. If only they did them spiral bound with nice hard covers! C’m on Vintage. Costly but we don’t care.

Two Views of Lolita


Two abstracts – one Robert Stamm, the other Thomas Allen Nelson, from books what they wrote. These expand the brief summary in Open Culture. Scripty person? You’ll love this.
