Screen Test for Sabrina

Scene for Men, April 1961

A preview of the actual test that won her a starring role

In the past we have brought you screen tests of aspiring young unknown actresses, acting out various roles for you in an attempt to prove that they are worthy of attention by Hollywood.

This month, we offer for your consideration a more familiar face and figure - Sabrina. Sabrina is an English lass who has appeared on British TV and in nightclubs in Miami and Las Vegas. Right now, she is making the first film* of her career, called Satan in High Heels.

*"First film of her career" if you ignore: Stock Car (1955), Ramsbottom Rides Again (1956), Blue Murder at St. Trinian's (1956), Just My Luck (1957) and Make Mine a Million (1959) - Ed.

Sabrina was delighted at the opportunity to preview her part in the film for the readers of SCENE. We met the buxom English starlet in the lobby of New York's Martinique Hotel. Later she took us to the hotel's nightclub, where much of the film's action takes place. There, Sabrina acted out her film role in the costumes she will wear in the actual film.

When Satan in High Heels reaches your own movie screen sometime this spring, this is the way you'll see the voluptuous blonde beauty - provided the censors don't make their own screen test of Sabrina first.
