The Pumpkin Eater | Harold Pinter | 1963

Collection of 6 vintage single weight borderless still photographs from the British release of the 1963 film. Five of the stills are black and white, one is sepia. One of the black and white photos is slightly cropped for press usage. Each has a mimeo sheet with all the film’s details affixed to the verso as issued.

Excepting the cropped photo, all are 8 x 10 inches. Very Good to Near Fine, with slight curl at the extremities.

“I defy any pretty girl who is rocketed to stardom in a sex nymphette role to stay on a level path. Lolitaexposed me to temptations no girl of that age should undergo. From the time I was about 16, I’d go totally wacko, totally crazy, for about three months at a time, then go into such deep depressions that I wouldn’t even leave the house to go to the grocery store.
I hate the spotlight, I hate people looking at me, I don’t like strangers asking me questions. I like to be left alone. I enjoy my security, my safeness with a private life. I was once on a television show, a talk show. My brother had just died two days before that. The interviewer opens his show by saying – and now I was 16 years old – he said, ‘Did your brother kill himself because you played Lolita?’ I didn’t say a thing. I got up and I walked off. I couldn’t even dignify that. I had no words. That’s typical of the reason that I can’t be a movie star. I never could.
Am I going to be Lolita when I’m 50? Much as I appreciated Lolita in her day, I’d like to leave her now.”
