Tired Old Queen at the Movies: Sabrina

Steve Hayes reviews the 1954 classic, a favorite of your Head Trucker's:
Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden get the Billy Wilder romantic treatment in SABRINA. Set in the wealthy background of the Long Island rich, Sabrina is a comic update of the classic story of The Prince and the Beggar Maid, but with a Wilder twist. Audrey has never been more beguiling or looked more chic than in her Givenchy wardrobe, which Edith Head took the Oscar for! Holden is dreamy with his blond hair, sexy smile and white tuxedo. But the big surprise is Bogart, who steals the picture in a role tailored for Cary Grant. It's champagne entertainment all the way and perfect for that Valentine's Day "post romantic stress disorder."

Much as I love Audrey, I could never warm to Sabrina.

I like it, Roman Holiday too. The only thing with Sabrina is, Holden and Bogart look much too old for her.

That's the thing, the male leads don't work at all. Roman Holiday - yep!
