Trivia / Sabrina

  • AFIS 100 Years 100 Passions: #54
  • Playing Against Type:
    • Humphrey Bogart is famous for playing hard-boiled, cynic, cool characters. Here, he plays the awkward, withdrawn workaholic Linus.
    • Cynical Billy Wilder seems like a surprising choice for the director/producer/co-writer of a modern (by fifties standards) fairy tale.
  • Retroactive Recognition: In a blink-and-you'll-miss it cameo, Paul Giamatti is the servant who said he assumed Linus was gay,
  • Science Marches On: When Sabrina tells the Baron that wanting David to love her feels as difficult as reaching for the moon, he tells her that people have started building rockets to reach the moon.
  • Troubled Production: Humphrey Bogart was not a happy man during the making of this film, and his attitude rubbed off on everyone else after a while.
