DVD Review: SABRINA Centennial Collection
In addition to Roman Holiday, SABRINA is another movie that has been released in the Centennial Collection DVD.
While I had heard of Sabrina and the 1995 remake, I hadn’t actually seen any of them, until now. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Even compared to today’s standards I found it funny, endearing, and well acted. Audrey Hepburn once again lights up the screen with her grace and beauty and supported by a great cast including Humphrey Bogart and William Holden.
While the story is nothing really original seeing as it is a romantic comedy, I found it really refreshing in its execution. There was still room left for surprises amongst the cliches, and I particularly loved the last scene between Humphrey Bogart and William Holden (you’ll know which one I’m talking about once you see it).
This is another classic that would be a great addition to your DVD collection. Full of special features and a restored image, you will be able to relieve the magic that is Sabrina over and over again.

Synopsis: Isn’t it romantic…SABRINA is charming, humorous and aglow with some of Hollywood’s greatest stars. Humphrey Bogart, William Holden and Audrey Hepburn star in a Cinderella story directed by renowned filmmaker Billy Wilder (Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot).
Bogie and Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island. Bogie’s all work, Holden’s all playboy. But when Sabrina, daughter of the family’s chauffeur, returns from Paris all grown up and glamorous, the stage is set for some family fireworks as the brothers fall under the spell of Hepburn’s delightful charms.
