diamours asked: Is it true that Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn did not get along for the filming of Sabrina?

It was more so that Humphrey Bogart didn’t get along with anyone (not including the crew) during the filming of Sabrina.  Apparently, he had his misgivings about playing the older love interest in Sabrina (originally written for Cary Grant) and took it out on director Billy Wilder. During filming, Audrey spent her off hours with Billy Wilder and William Holden (whom she was having an affair with at the time). The three of them would often hang out during and after filming.  Audrey was quoted saying “I was rather terrified of Humphrey Bogart - and he knew it.  [But] if he didn’t like me, he certainly never showed it.”   

audreyheckburn asked: what would you say is your favorite hairstyle of Audrey's?

Her hairstyle in Sabrina.  I love that haircut!  It wasn’t too short and had a bit of a wave.  It’s my all time favorite haircut of anyones.

spikeswithflowers asked: Where is the dress Audrey Hepburn wore in Sabrina located now? Thank you!

I’m trying to do a bit of digging online to find out the answer but so far this is what I’ve come up with:

In 2012 “one of the beautiful gowns Givenchy made for Ms. Hepburn [was] available for viewing at Club TCM in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, on the first floor.  It’s in pristine condition, featured alongside a still from the film of her wearing it.” Huffington Post

veronicamason asked: I red Audrey was in Paris at the Sabrina prémiere on 4th february 1954, do you have any image of that...?? Thank you....!!

You have impeccable timing. I actually put together a post yesterday of Audrey and Mel at a European première of Sabrina.  I have a feeling it’s from the France première; however, it could be from the Netherlands screening as well.  I’ll post the pictures now.  Based on the earrings she is wearing, I’m positive those pictures are from the French première.

mochawhip asked: I happened to catch Sabrina on TV last night and watched it for the first time. What a delightful little film! I was wondering if you have any color photos of that gorgeous ball dress Audrey wears for the party that Sabrina goes to when she returns from Paris. Thank you!

Yay! Sabrina is my favorite Audrey film. I’m so glad you enjoyed it.

“She was the love of my life. Sometimes at night, I’d get a portable record player and drive out to the country to a little clearing we’d found. We’d put on ballet music. Some of our most magic moments were there.” -William Holden
