Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 3 min.
Legendary bubbly blonde 1950s TV starlet Sabrina (born Norma Sykes) slips into something more comfortable after luxuriating with her loofah in this (very slightly) saucy home-viewing 8mm glamour short. Discovered by diminutive, bespectacled comedian Arthur Askey, Sabrina had been enlisted as a shapely 'gimmick' for his 1950s television series, Before Your Very Eyes. Sabrina's popularity briefly threatened to eclipse that of Askey himself. As the 'silly little man' revealed in his biography: "she eventually became bigger (in every sense) than me in the show... the tail began to wag the dog, so she had to go." Sabrina made the most of her fame, though, appearing in adverts, feature films, and at least two 8mm shorts for Walton Films, circa 1959 - this, and At Home with Sabrina, shot in colour.
