Sabrina In Rome - November 1958

Do YOU have any Sabrina stuff?


En route to Australia in 1958, Sabrina stopped in Rome. A LOT of photos were taken of her between the 12th and 15th of November that year!

In 2011, thanks to a tip from the noble Guy From The Netherlands, we have 100 pix of Sabrina in Rome: arriving, getting her (clay) bust built, visiting the Trevi fountain, having dinner and a hoola hoop, and being a tourist.

For those who care, to the Italians she was "Sabrina Anor Sikas" - their version of Ann Sykes!

They come from an press images site and are heavily watermarked, but the site's rules of use say that non-commercial use of their low-res images is permitted. So we get to see some brand new photos of a little-understood time.

We have a short video of Sabrina in Rome (1MB, MP4) which recapitulates many of the still images below.

Warning - turn down your speakers because there is a loud and annoying background noise.

Thanks to Tim we have a new pic of Sabrina, most likely in Rome 1958. Thanks, Tim!

Sabrina later wondered (in our third interview) what was going in that all-woman studio with artist Novella Paragini. Sabby had her suspicions!

SHAPING UP
ROME: Getting the proper perspective on his work, Bulgarian-born sculptor Assen Peikov compares bosomy British actress Sabrina with the bust of her he's just created. Many stars of stage and screen visit Peikov's studio to have themselves "immortalized" in clay. 21 November 1958.

(This picture also appeared in the Ocala Star Banner on 17 Dec 1958, probably amongst many other papers)
