Sabrina is still being talked about.

Actor Steve Cochran has just finished his role in the film "Il Grido", shot in Italy, and went to the Bavarians Alps to rest for a weekend.

He was soon joined there by Sabrina, the hottest young beauty in Britain today. Rumor has it that the two young people are considering marriage.

On the left, Steve and Sabrina stroll through the streets of Garmish, accompanied by the actor German Jurgen Frundt. Steve and Sabrina have become inseparable since he met her in London, where he finished his film.

In the second picture, they are photographed at the Carnival Ball, after a day devoted to skiing.
In the third photo, Steve demonstrates, to Chef Levano and actress Alida Valli, how poultry is prepared. Finally, right, Steve and Sabrina dance to the sound of a German orchestra.

And of course they went skiing.

From the caption on the back of one of the photos:

A few days ago Sabrina, a TV star from England, came to Munich to:
1) immerse herself in the action of Munich's carnival season;
2) to see mountains up close and real for the first time in her life, and thirdly to meet her future director, Steve Cochran, who came from Hollywood.

Our picture: Sabrina and Steve Cochran have managed to immerse themselves in the Munich Carnival scene. While Steve gets some refreshment from a "Flaschenbier" [bottled beer], Sabrina waits for the famous Munich white sausages.

Picture 2: the sampling turns out very awkwardly/unfavourably/inauspiciously – for the white sausages!

20 April 1957 - Picturegoer (in an article about Steve Cochran)


"I'm getting fed up with all this talk about Sabrina and me," said Steve Cochran. " I went to buy some souvenirs the other day and was mobbed by hordes of women. 'That's Sabrina's boy friend,' they were shouting.
Will he marry her? "I don't think so," he says. "Anyway, she would have to do the proposing ... I NEVER propose.
"She's fun to be with and all that. But I don't think I'll marry her."
He was saying that as he picked up the phone to talk to her. It was lucky that she didn't hear...
