So this is all titles that are part of the same series? (As opposed to unrelated)

Nope, they are completely unrelated (except they make up an [unrelated] whole).

My first is american.
My secondA is joint American and UK and my secondB is joint American and French (French?!?!? Does anyone know what IMDB means when the list two countries? Can it be as insignificant that scenes were filmed there? French?!?!?!?)
My Third and fourth are American.

I assume my whole is american but I'm not sure as it isn't listed in IMDB and in the GC catalog it doesn't say although it sure seemed american.

I'm going to answer, yes. All are American productions.

Cripes. Okay, I admit it looks perplexing (as in what the heck do you even have it mind) but I assure you it gets easy once started.

The "adolescent seductress" should be pretty easy and probably is the first thing you think. Once you get that you'll probably see how this works.

Anyhow, this came to me in a dream which may explain the obscurity of the "whole" but once one gets the parts the whole should be easy to look up.

My first wasn't.
Kubrick's Lolita was but the one with Jeremy Irons wasn't.
My third was.
My fourth was.
My whole was.

1983 might as well be 1991 as none were made between 1983 and 1991.

My first was not made before 1991 so it wasn't made before 1983 either.
Kubrik's Lolita was made before 1983 but the Lolita with Jeremy Irons was not made before 1991.
My third was made before 1983.
My fourth was made before 1983.And my whole was made before 1983.

So we have:


before- 1974|before 1983|before 1991|
First no |no |no |
Lolita Kubrik's |Kubrik's |Kubrick's |
not Irons' |not Iron's |not Irons |
Third yes |yes |yes |
Fourth no |yes |yes |
Whole no |yes |yes |

and about american productions

First: yes
Lolita: Kubrik's with England | Irons' with France
Third: yes
Fourth: yes

Hint: I claimed the country of origin of the whole wasn't stated on GC (and it wasn't) and that it wasn't listed in IMDB. Wrong, it is listed in IMBD but I couldn't find it on IMDB. However, I could google it and find the IMDB listing by Google but not via IMDB itself.

I'm going to not bother with with the rather free association of "plot keywords" one gets when one clicks on the "more" tag next to the genre listings.

My first is not in IMDB's drama genre
Both Lolitas are.
My third is not in IMDB's drama genre
My fourth is.
My whole is. But .....
