Vanessa Redgrave and Sabrina (both British) are a big Don't Invitem. Supposedly started a cocktail party over a criticism of the latter's figure. (End of long yawn)

Behind the scenes in Hollywood - by Harrison Carroll

ACTRESS Sabrina denied to me that she is even engaged but I keep hearing that Dr Harold Melsheimer gave her a big ring and that the two may be married very soon.

He and Sabrina just started dating recently. Before that, she was seen mainly with scenarist Abby Mann.


26 September 1967 - New Castle PA. News, p.6

At Abbey Mann's party for house-guest Arthur Miller, the playwright, Sabrina was with Dr. Harold Melsheimer.


21 November 1967

Aged 31, Sabrina marries Dr Harold Ludwig Melsheimer, a wealthy Hollywood ob-gyn in LA. They settle down in Encino, CA. Sabrina continues occasional film, television, theatre and nightclub appearances.

She quits showbusiness and eases back into an opulent married life, complete with a 40ft yacht, sports cars, mink stoles and Hollywood parties. Her Doberman Pinscher has its own bedroom and bathroom.

It baffles me why there are no articles, photos or references to the wedding anywhere on the internet. Most odd.

See supersleuth Michael T's report (7 Feb 2003) of how he discovered Sabrina's wedding date.

Sabrina weds
Sabrina, the 29 - year old blonde British showgirl, has married American surgeon Harry Melsheimer in Hollywood, her parents, said at their Blackpool home last night. "I wasn't a bit surprised," her mother said.

It's amazing how little impact Sabrina's wedding had on the media. Only 6 lines in an English newspaper, no mention at all in American papers, and I'm still searching for a single photo of the event.

She added: "Sabrina and her husband have been friends for some time."
Sabrina, 29, told her mother: "He's tall, dark and handsome. I know that sounds corny, but it's the only way to describe him. We're very much in love."
