HARRIS KUBRICK: GENIUS TAKES TWO
Double Feature! James B. Harris In Person!
LOLITA / DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB
Discussion between films with LOLITA producer James B. Harris.
LOLITA
1962, Warner Bros., 152 min, Dir: Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick’s hilariously bleak and twisted portrait of sexual obsession (based on Vladimir Nabokov’s infamous novel) stars James Mason as ultra-fussy college professor Humbert Humbert, whose life is upended when he sets eyes on Sue Lyon’s blasé blond teen nymphet. Watch for Peter Sellers’ scene-stealing performance as Humbert’s nemesis.


DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB
1964, Sony Repertory, 93 min, Dir: Stanley Kubrick

A gallery of unforgettable comic grotesques, including Sterling Hayden’s fluoride-hating general, George C. Scott’s oversexed Commie killer, and the brilliant Peter Sellers as the befuddled U.S. president, as well as the veddy British commander Mandrake and the maniacal Dr. Strangelove. Slim Pickens (BLAZING SADDLES) plummets his way into comedic history. "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here, this is the war room."
