Lolita What a great scene from Stanley Kubrick's 1962 film 'Lolita'. In this scene Humbert is checking out a room he's thinking about renting and stumbles upon his deciding factor. Shelley Winters, James Mason, Sue Lyon and Peter Sellers were perfectly cast! Trivia for this is in the Comments.

-Tuesday Weld was considered for the title role. Stanley Kubrick originally wanted Joey Heatherton for the title role, but Heatherton's father Ray Heatherton said no, for fear his daughter would be typecast as a promiscuous sex kitten. Hayley Mills also turned down the role. At the time, her father, John Mills, was credited with the decision. Later, Walt Disney was blamed.

- The Humbert Humbert role was originally offered to Cary Grant, who turned it down in indignation. Errol Flynn was considered, but died before the film was made. Marlon Brando and David Niven were also considered.

- One ending that was considered was to have Humbert and Lolita get married in a state that allowed young people to wed; this ending was considered in order to appease the censors.

Yes, it was definitely the garden that was the deciding factor.

Interesting trivia about who was being cast. It's a bit funny that Joey's dad didn't want her being type as a promiscous sex kitten but if anyone saw Twilight of Honor or Where Love Has Gone, she was already playing the part.

Exactly eric...she was a sex symbol throughout her career.
