Sabrina running with Don Cornell.

Sabrina ran round Green Park, London yesterday - with American singer Don Cornell. He runs round the park most mornings, but finds it lonely without company. So yesterday (25.3.56) Sabrina went running too, Later, Don caught a plane to Glasgow. He is singing there in a show that opens tomorrow. He will still take his morning run - and he would still like company.

Sabrina with Lee Gordon and Sammy Davis Jr at Lees Theatre restaurant, 27 April 1959.

I'm not sure what drugs the girl on the right was taking, but I'd like some...

Fortunately, the caption on the picture above alerted us to the fact that Sabrina was the one on the left.

Sabrina with Victor Rogers

A new player on the "With Sabrina" page - Victor Rogers.
From the (undated) caption on the back:

Victor Rogers, who appeared in the film "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and more recently has been doing cabaret, pictured Sabrina (real name Norma Sykes), famous for her generous figure and one TV's best-known blonde. She now appears on the stage and in clubs.

Sabrina with Carlo Giusdini, an Italian star who was in England filming "The Baby on the Battleship" on 1 March 1956 for the UK premiere of the movie "A Town Like Alice" at the Odeon Theatre, Leicester Square.

Sabrina - cut out for success!

From the Blackpool Gazette (2013-07-31), this rather creepy oddity.
Gerald and David Bryan meet Sabrina in winter gardens - or is it a cutout?

The article in full:

Sabrina cutout pic

Was Sabrina cut out for entertainment?

The question could well be asked by Gerald Bryan, of Crossland Road, Marton, pictured here in his early teens with a glamorous companion and older brother David.

Gerald, who will be 72 in September, says: “The picture was taken in the Olympia Hall of the Winter Gardens, where there used to be an indoor funfair and arcades, although to be honest I cannot recall it.

“My brother claims we were stood with entertainer Sabrina, but I am sure it was a full size cardboard cut out”

Now Gerald is hoping readers are able to throw some light on what Sabrina (or her cut-out) were up to in Blackpool in the mid 1950s.

Sabrina was the stage name of well-endowed Blackpool waitress Norma Sykes, who was discovered and launched on TV as a sex symbol by comedian Arthur Askey.

According to the second volume of showbusiness historian Barry Band’s Blackpool’s Century of Stars, Sabrina’s “occasional local show appearances ended with a top-of-the-bill spot in variety week at the Queen’s Theatre in October 1964”.

Sabrina with Kenneth More, Nigel Stock, and Windsor Davies and two ladies...
but I don't know why, where or when.

Sabrina, with the Miss Hialeah contestants (a beauty contest in Florida, USA, which feeds into the Miss Florida competition, apparently). The back of the photos bore the date stamp 4 September 1966, but whether this was the date the photo was taken, or the date when it was used by a newspaper, I cannot say.

I can, however, report that Miss Florida of 1966 was named Randy Beard, and was placed as 4th runner-up in Miss USA. Randy Beard. LOL!

Beautiful Britons #8 1956

Sabrina, well-stocked with British glamour, meets up with LEE SHARON, pert pinup from the States at a Mayfair hotel. Looks like they're exchanging mutual admiration, in which case a bouquet to both of them for being such nice girls.

Lee Sharon also featured in Sabrina's second visit to Australia. In that article it mentions that Sabrina was the guest for three or four weeks of entrepreneur LEE GORDON, who was "the former fiance of stripper Lee Sharon."

Sabrina and Marty Wilde, father of Kim Wilde, 7 October 1957

Sabrina and Marty Wilde 1957Sabrina and Marty Wilde 1957

Sunday School Girl or Sabrina? Marty Chose Sabrina.

Thanks to Herr David for the translation of the German caption:

He who is spoilt for choice has, as is well-known, a tough time making that choice.

Here a new rock ‘n’ roll star, Marty Wilde, is agonising over it. While he sang “Honeycomb you’re my baby” to Sabrina at a rehearsal, his girlfriend Rosemary Reid (19) was teaching at Sunday School. She had made him choose between fame and her friendship.  For the time being he’s decided in favour of his stage career and a salary of DM 1800 instead of DM 72, and Sabrina was very impressed by him. But deep in his heart Rosemary does remain the best, who, as he puts it: “is a simple girl and fears losing me to the star-crazy girls. But I am just a simple guy and don’t want to be famous.
Picture: Marty serenades Sabrina – nevertheless his mind's more on Rosemary.

Found at the Victoria and Albert Museum site, thanks to a tip from Paul W. They were photographed by Harry Hammond in 1955. Thanks, Paul!

Sabrina and the Four Aces. Did they work together, or was it just an opportunistic photoshoot? I can find no information of The Four Aces working with Sabrina.

Sabrina and Ronald Searle

Sabrina with Ronald Searle in Blue Murder at St Trinians - for BOOBS members only

23 Oct 2010 - Hi Mark, I've been fortunate enough to get to know legendary cartoonist/illustrator Ronald Searle over the past couple years. He allowed me access to his extensive & meticulously catalogued personal archive where I found the attached photo of him drawing Sabrina on the set of Blue Murder at St. Trinians. It's a different angle to the publicity still you have on the site. I also have a beter version of that angle if you like? BTW great work on the Sabrina site-she's a fascinating character once you start reading around all the articles you've collated. Matt J

"Busty Sabrina is a Yeardye admirer. She says, "Tommy can have the key to my safe any time he wants"

Tommy Yeardye, 18 July 1930 - 21 April 2004. Entrepreneur and lover of Diana Dors. The reference to the safe, apparently is when Dors dumped him and demanded that he opened his safe deposit box so she could see if he was hiding money from her. Yeardye invited the police to be present.

A Sabrina Exclusive from Ron

Sabrina - Norma Sykes

"I've enjoyed surfing through your wonderful Sabrina site and am sending you an exclusive pic taken at Woodend, Victoria, Australia, horse race meeting in 1959. That's me without the hat in case you're wondering. The other one is Sabrina, in the exact outfit she had worn to Royal Ascot previously. Sabrina's mother is looking over my shoulder, keeping an eye on things. Sabrina was a lovely lass, with no airs and graces.......very natural." Ron.

Thanks, Ron! Read more about Ron's experience and see his autographed pic on the Memories of Sabrina page.

A Plaque for the Fabulous Sabrina

Yesterday, two soldiers from Stockport, Lancashire, journeyed specially to London to meet the famous variety girl Sabrina who is now appearing and the Price of Wales theatre, and present her with a plaque in admiration of her splendid fight against adversity and for winning through to high success. Sabrina was struck down with polio in her early teens, and was in hospital for three years. The men were from the 7th Battalion, Cheshire regiment, the men of whom are keen to "adopt" Sabrina again.
