Sabrina

Billy Wilder's 1954 version of the Samuel Taylor staple was a perfect vehicle for Audrey Hepburn, though the cut is too tight for her costars, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden. She's the chauffeur's daughter; they're her brotherly suitors. It isn't major Wilder by any stretch, and the old problem of taste pops up again, but in the later light of Fedora it might be worth another look: Wilder's tastelessness now seems his major artistic strength. With John Williams and Martha Hyer.
