Sept. 23, 1954: Edwin Schallert reviews "Sabrina." "Constantly through the cleverness of individual situations 'Sabrina' seems to override what is wrong with its plot and even its motivation. It is strictly movie in its essential values which all too often, according to all-too-well established Hollywood tradition, completely disregard the issue of being convincing."
