Continuity mistake: After Lolita hugs and kisses Humbert goodbye before leaving for camp, the positions of his hands on her back change from shot to shot as he's lowering her back to the floor.
Claire Quilty (the playwright) is the guy who Delores (Lolita) Haze runs off with and Humbert kills him. Lolita, at 17, is married and pregnant. She refuses to return to Humbert. Lolita dies in childbirth, and Humbert dies of a heart attack in prison.
Humbert: I missed you. I missed you a lot.
Lolita: Well I haven't missed you. In fact, I've been revoltingly unfaithful to you. But it doesn't matter, because you don't care about me anymore anyway.
Humbert: What makes you think I don't care about you?
Lolita: Well you haven't kissed me yet, have you?
Question: When Lolita enters Humbert's room for the very first time, she asks him if she's getting a zit. According to Google, zit was used to define a pimple circa 1966. The movie takes place in 1947. Was the slang used back then?
