Fw: Imaginary Nabokovian Screenplays

----- Original Message -----

For the N-List.

A while back I asked the N-List members to submit a scenario for a movie of "Pale Fire" and several entertaining submissions came in--"Brian Boyd descending in a parachute as the opening credits rolled."

I read recently that VN himself volunteered to write a screen treatment for ADA but it never materialized. Can anyone give us a one page treatment for the movie ADA? Somebody's got to do it!

I also wonder how Billy Wilder would have handled "Lolita" given the chance. I bet he would not have missed a single visual trick.
