I’m not a huge Kubrick fan, but “this story”:http://film.guardian.co.uk/features/featurepages/0,4120,1177734,00.html where a journalist talks about going to the Kucrick mansion and digging through his archives is fascinating.

bq. I start, chronologically, in a portable cabin behind the stable block, with a box marked Lolita. I open it, noting the ease with which the lid comes off. “These are excellent, well-designed boxes,” I think to myself. I flick through the paperwork inside, pausing randomly at a letter that reads as if it has come straight from a Jane Austen novel:

bq. Dear Mr Kubrick,

bq. Just a line to express to you and to Mrs Kubrick my husband’s and my own deep appreciation of your kindness in arranging for Dimitri’s introduction to your uncle, Mr Gnther Rennert.

bq. Sincerely,

bq. Mrs Vladimir Nabokov
