Well, they didn't. This week, Jamie dives into the backstory to Stanley Kubrick's 1962 adaptation of Lolita, interviews one of the world's foremost Kubrick scholars, examines Vladimir Nabokov's involvement and how the first Lolita, Sue Lyon, was treated on set and in media.
[Trigger warning: this podcast contains discussion of child sex abuse, pedophillia and the plot of the story Lolita.]
