126. Sabrina (A)

Another old film series at the Screening Room, this time Audrey Hepburn-themed. One of her earliest hits (after the breakout Roman Holiday, which I've already seen), this is a late screwball comedy of sorts. The opening scenes with Hepburn's character make her seem almost like a stalker, but it picks up from there, and has the usual Wilder charm. Humphrey Bogart takes a role in a comedy, not exactly the norm for him (though his dramatic roles always had a pretty heavy dose of wry humour, so I don't know that it actually varies his persona much, just the story around him). Unlike a lot of these stories, the script lets Bogart reveal the truth on his own, without some narrative contrivance, which adds power.
