Continuity mistake: Lolita goes into Humbert's room and she is chewing gum. She then sits on Humbert's lap and sticks her gum on a piece of paper on his desk. A couple of shots later, she is chewing gum again.
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 was not quite prepared for the reality of my dual role. On the one hand, the willing corruptor of an innocent, and on the other, Humbert the happy housewife.
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?
