SABRINA:
Sabrina is charming, humorous and aglow with some of Hollywood's greatest stars. Humphrey Bogart, William Holden and Audrey Hepburn star in a Cinderella story directed by renowned film-maker Billy Wilder (Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot). Bogie and Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island. Bogie's all work, Holden's all playboy. But when Sabrina, daughter of the family's chauffeur, returns from Paris all grown up and glamorous, the stage is set for some family fireworks as the brothers fall under the spell of Hepburn's delightful charms.

FUNNY FACE:
In the Academy Award-nominated classic, Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire join forces, lending their song and dance talents to the timeless musical. When a fashion magazine mogul (Kay Thompson) and her head photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) scout out a bookstore for their next photo shoot, Dick discovers the unique face of bookseller and amateur philosopher Jo Stockton (Hepburn). Whisked off to Paris, Jo is soon transformed into a global supermodel and finds herself falling for the photographer who first noticed her sunny, funny face.

Special Features
FUNNY FACE:, Paris, the City of Light, shines even brighter when Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire team up for the only time and bring their luminous starpower to this exquisite musical featuring songs by George and Ira Gershwin. This dazzling romp - filmed on location in Paris - garnered four Academy Award nominations. In the role of a bookstore clerk transformed into a modelling sensation, Hepburn showcases singing and dancing skills she had honed on the London stage, performing 'How Long Has This Been Going On?', a 'Basal Metabolism' dance in a cool-cat bistro and more. Astaire, as the fashion photographer who discovers her, conjures up his inimitable magic for sequences that include his 'Let's Kiss And Make Up' matador diversion, a heavenly dance with Hepburn to 'He Loves And She Loves' and, again with Hepburn, the title-tune enchantment, 'I Love Your Funny Face.' Now and forever, so do we.
