The Blonde Who Bombed Castro
Picture Scope, October 1960
By Avery Mann
Not since Fidel himself swept into pawer have the Cubans seen such goings-on as when Sabrina, the British bombshell came on the scene!
Since that time, Sabrina has come a long way. For one thing, her measurements have increased to 41½" ("And still growing!" her press releases say.) For another, she's now one of the world's highest paid entertainers. But it wasn't until she turned a whole country on its ear and flipped its bearded leader that she scored her biggest success.
Sabrina arrived in Havana amid reports that her career was at its zenith and it wouldn't be long before she was on her uppers, as they say in Blighty. What her detractors hadn't been counting on was the unbridled enthusiasm which greeted the top-heavy temptress from the moment she stepped off the plane. Big blondes just seem to appeal to the Cubans, who have their fill of sultry senoritas all day long.
"Sabrina's the toast of all Cuba!" shouted a high official when she'd been there but two days. But that was time enough for England's answer to everything to take over the cabinet, impressing the ministers with her knowledge of their country, Castro was her next conquest.
The bewhiskered revolutionary took a long look at her ever-present curves, muttered something that sounded like "Nikita has nothing like this!" and proceeded to paint the town crimson with his glamorous guest. "Everyone should be grateful for this Bundle from Britain," the Havana press gleefully reported.
And the Cuban hulabaloo didn't do any harm to Sabrina's career, either. She was deluged with offers from all over the world, decided to head for Miami and later New York. Maybe even an American movie, if all went well. "Who says I've gone bust?" she countered to newsmen. After the way Fidel and his followers fell for the sexpot, it'll be a while before those rumors circulate again.
