Continuity mistake: When Lolita begins to undress in front of Humbert, she is wearing her school uniform. Her shirt first appears tucked in, then out and then in again.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Lolita: I was a daisy fresh girl and look what you've done to me.
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?
