Scene on Colfax: Sue Lyon

Sue Lyon
Sue Lyon, the object of an older man's obsessions in Stanley Kubrick's 1962 film, Lolita, supposedly attempted suicide by jumping out the window of the Bugs Bunny Hotel on West Colfax not realizing that it was a one-story hotel... but I think that is likely an exaggerated local urban myth. She did lead a tragic life, married an inmate from Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City and sadly worked as a cocktail waitress in Estes Park.
