Trivia:
The original title of "Sabrina Fair" was reinstated in the UK due to well known TV personality, Sabrina (real name Norma Sykes) who became an icon simply by appearing on "The Arthur Askey Show" (1961). Askey, at little over 5 feet tall got huge laughs just by standing next to the statuesque Sabrina, whose substantial bosom became her trade mark, never spoke any lines. The film distributors thought the momentary stardom of the Rubenesque Sabrina in the UK would mislead British audiences.See more »

Wonderfully told love story, 27 August 2004

Audrey Hepburn plays Sabrina Fairchild, who goes to Paris as a girl and returns as a woman.Before she left Sabrina was interested in David Larrabee (William Holden) but he didn't show any interest on her.But things have changed as she comes back from Paris.She's not the same teen girl anymore.She's an attractive woman.And David notices that too.And so does David's brother Linus (Humphrey Bogart). Sabrina (1954) was directed by one of the greatest directors of all time, Billy Wilder.The acting work is unique.Audrey Hepburn, who is one of the most beautiful women of all time, does her job very well.Not only was she beautiful, she was also extremely talented.You could always trust on William Holden and Humphrey Bogart.They were both brilliant.This is a very well written movie.The comedy and the romance both work just great in this movie.Sabrina was made fifty years ago but that doesn't mean it wouldn't work today.Great romantic tales will always work.
