Portland Mason

  1. Sue Lyon, Lolita, 1962.     !
  2. Celia Kaye, The New Loretta Young Show, TV, 1962-1963.  At 13,  Portland was  cast as Marnie  – one of Young’s seven children. She was then sacked  before a shot was fired on  her first day for reasons that were later  disputed in court.  The Masons won the case. Not the role. Stanley Kubrick actually found his Lolita, Sue Lyon, on the same  Loretta Young Show.  Yes, the sanctimonious “Saint Loretta”  found Lolita!
  3. Tippy Walker, The World of Henry Orient, 1964.   Portland came this close to stalking celebrated pianist Peter Sellers.  She had ten screen roles during 1954-1968.
