Sabrina (1954)

Hepburn plays Sabrina, the chauffeur’s daughter to the rich Larrabee family. She’s in love with David, the playboy and youngest son but he doesn’t even know she exists. She goes away to cooking school in Paris and comes back a sophisticated young lady which immediately catches David’s attention when he’s driving one day and sees her stranded at the train station. But he does not recognize her until later when she reunites with her father and the staff of the Larrabee household. David invites her to their party, and Sabrina think it’s a dream come true. Until the older brother Linus sees them dancing together and devises a plan to get Sabrina back to Paris so David can marry his fiancee Elizabeth Tyson, so Larrabee Industries can merge with Tyson Plastics. A wonderfully romantic comedy with the three leads giving terrific performances. Starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, William Holden, John Williams, Walter Hampden, Martha Hyer, Nella Walker, Ellen Corby 9/10
