Synopsis

Four-volume box set of classic Audrey Hepburn films. In 'Sabrina Fair' (1954), Sabrina Fairchild (Hepburn) is the impressionable daughter of the chauffeur to the wealthy Larabee family. Her childhood crush on David Larabee (William Holden), the playboy younger brother, goes unnoticed until she returns a woman from finishing school in Paris. When David's dalliance with Sabrina places a lucrative business deal at risk, hard-headed elder brother Linus (Humphrey Bogart) steps in and decides to woo her himself. In 'Funny Face' (1956), Jo Stockton (Hepburn) is a bookshop worker with intellectual pretensions. Discovered by the editor of a top fashion magazine and asked to become the figurehead of a new collection, Jo is talked into going to Paris by magazine photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire), and they soon become romantically involved. 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961) stars Hepburn as Holly Golightly, an eccentric high-class escort working in New York. When young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard) - the kept man of a wealthy older woman - moves into Holly's apartment block, he finds inspiration when he falls in love with her. Finally in 'Paris When It Sizzles' (1963), writer Richard Benson (William Holden) has spent the last three months boozing in Paris instead of concentrating on producing his screenplay for Hollywood producer Alexander Meyerheimer. He now has just three days till his deadline, and so hires temporary secretary Gabrielle Simpson (Hepburn) to assist him. The secretary proves to be an unexpected source of inspiration, acting out various outlandish plots for Richard and firing his imagination.
