Synopsis

Collection of two films starring Audrey Hepburn. In 'Sabrina' (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' (1957), 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. The film features George and Ira Gershwin songs and pokes fun at both the shallow world of fashion and the pretentions of the Beat Generation movement.
