Sabrina

   17 September 2004, evening time

I watched Sabrina, Audrey Hepburn’s second film, yesterday with Shima. The film is directed by the brilliant Billy Wilder, of Some Like It Hot fame. The movie is funny and charming. I’m a big fan of Hepburn, and I think she is great in this film. It may have been the first film I ever saw her in. The movies plot is basically a simple love triangle. William Holden and Humphrey Bogart do great jobs playing the two millionaire brothers viewing for Sabrina’s affection. I think it is sometimes refreshing to watch a film as old as this one. I recomend you check it out.

  1. Unrelated to Sabrina, I noticed that in Firefox my little pictures display funny. Anyone know why the padding isn’t being applied?

  2. Unrelated to Sabrina, those images should look correct in Firefox now. I’m surprised no one brought it up sooner.

  3. Unrelated to Sabrina, I have decided to get rid of the thumbnails. I liked them at first, but now I think they look out of place. The problem is sometimes they don’t get sucked down from Amazon, and also recent movies don’t have pictures. There is an inconsistency to it all I guess. Anyone here miss them?

  4. Three “Unrelated to Sabrina” posts in a row ;p

    Btw, is it just me or do other people get Sabrina and Roman Holiday mixed up? I know they’re different stories, but both are Hepburn and made within a year of each other.

    Lastly – her second film? You mean her second top-billing film, right?

  5. Her second big film. I don’t know how comon it is to get the two movies mixed up. The stories are quite different I would say. Sabrina has some great lines. I wonder if the remake does it any justice.

  6. The remake was okay as I remember it. But I saw both the original and the remake years and years ago, so I can’t say for sure.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
