Sabrina (1954)

Starring Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, and William Holden

Directed by Billy Wilder

Release Date: September 9, 1954

A young girl returns home after seeing the world and enriching herself. Soon, she is fancied by David Larraby, a charming playboy whom the young girl had a crush on for many years. Seeing that his brother's infatuation will ruin a multi-million dollar deal, Linus Larraby concocts a scheme to woo Sabrina into returning back to Paris without tarnishing the reputation of the rich and powerful Larrabies.
Forget the 1993 remake starring Harrison Ford and Greg Kinnear, this is the only version of Sabrina worth mentioning and praising. All the cast is fantastic, from Bogart to Hepburn to Holden. The writing is great and the movie is just solid on all levels.

Rating: * * * * * of 5
