The last film of the iconic director Billy Wilder with Paramount Pictures, after a long 12-year collaboration with many Oscars, was “Sabrina” (1954). The charm of the ’50s is appeared here in the most beautiful way, as the black and white film creates a nostalgic tone that takes the result to the next level, making the film a true example of the golden age of Hollywood.
Sabrina Fairchild (Audrey Hepburn) is in love from an early age with David Larrabee (William Holden) who avoids her because of her social status, as she is the chauffeur’s daughter in the Larrabee mansion. When Sabrina returns from her studies in Paris with a renewed style, David approaches her erotically, with the mutual attraction now seeming to end in marriage. Then comes Linus Larrabee (Humphrey Bogart), David’s older brother and devoted businessman, fascinated by Sabrina’s beauty.
