Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden… could you ask for a better cast? This 1954 film had the makings to be a classic romance film from the time its cast was chosen! This is another black and white film that needs to be on everyone’s must watch list!

Charmingly, the movie begins with the fairy tale tag line “Once upon a time..” outlining immediately that this was the modern fairy tale! Sabrina Fairchild (played by Audrey Hepburn) was not an heiress or a princess, but instead the daughter of a chauffeur for the Larrabee family. Immediately, Sabrina almost seems like Cinderella, a servant who seemed destined for love and her perfect ever after. It seems that David Larrabee (played by William Holden) was meant to her prince charming, although his track record was anything but fairy tale worthy… What makes things more complicated is that David did not seem to notice Sabrina… but it is not matter since Sabrina leaves for Paris, France to go to culinary school. With all this information laid out within the first few minutes, you will be impatient to see how this fairy tale romance plays out, if it does at all…

It may end in a way you didn’t expect…
