The best movie of all time, 5 February 2001
Author: Lucita from Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Sabrina (Hepburn) is a chauffeur's teenage daughter, who longs to live a life of luxury. David (Holden) is the younger of her employer's two sons, and has been married a number of times. Linus (Bogart), the older one, is interested only in the stock market, having no time for women. Sabrina has loved David her whole life, but he "doesn't even know she exists". Trying to rid herself of him, she decides to leave for Paris, where she attends a cooking school. Sabrina returns later, looking like a glamorous woman of the world, and David falls for her.

I don't want to say any more, but I advise everyone to immediately go rent this movie. I promise you that if you are a fan of any of the cast members, enjoy old movies, or have seen the remake, you will thoroughly enjoy this classic.

Audrey Hepburn, William Holden, and Humphrey Bogart give fabulous performances in "Sabrina" (1954).
