Picture Trivia
          Actress Sue Lyon (full name Suellyn Lyon, born July 10, 1946) was only 14 years old when she portrayed the role of Dolores Haze, the sexually charged adolescent and the object of an older man’s obsessions in the 1962 film, Lolita, directed by Stanley Kubrick. She was chosen for the role partly because her curvy figure suggested an appearance of an adult. Based on the novel of the same title by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov (1899-1977), Kubrick’s Lolita, although a toned-down version of the story, was nonetheless one of the most talked about films of its day. Only barely 15 years old when the film premiered, Sue Lyon became an instant celebrity and won a Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Newcomer – Female.
          In what can be considered as scruples amid society’s double standard, Lyon went to a moviehouse to see her own film, Lolita, but ironically was not permitted to enter the theater because she was a minor.
          The following year, Lyon was again casted as a precocious and seductive young teen in the John Huston directorial The Night of the Iguana, where she fitted charm and beauty against the like of Deborah Kerr and Ava Gardner to gain the attention of Richard Burton.
