Audrey Hepburn and William Holden, on set and off, yes, they certainly did…

    Waving an imaginary turkeyleg back at you in the form of a wineglass! So grateful for you…wish I was there…

    Audrey was so beautiful in Sabrina. I felt Bogart was too old but Holden perfect as the scoundrel she falls in love with the first time. The remake was such a turkey in comparison! Happy Thanksgiving, Vickie.

    @iheartingrid – Bogey was never too old. Never!
    As for Ms. Hepburn, the moving gif reminds me of what I’ve always wondered… what kind of magic Hollywood makeup did they have back then? In classic film, lipstick never comes off on white gloves, or cheeks, or during a kiss (unless it’s plot-driven, such as a humorous or tell-tale kiss print on a guy’s face). That stuff must have been dry as dust!

      All I know is that Max Factor created a special make-up (Silver #1) so that Greta Garbo would literally glow on film. So much so that she was the technical center of every shot she was in for the director of photography. Can you imagine if they could replicate that today and have glowing women walking around? There would be a lot more traffic accidents, I can tell you.
