Charmed By Audrey: Life On The Set Of Sabrina

Charmed by Audrey

Description: In 1953, Paramount was filming a screen version of Sabrina Fair —the critically acclaimed Broadway play written by Samuel Taylor. The film’s star was the stylish young ingénue Audrey Hepburn, who, typically camera shy, found the perfect photographer in Mark Shaw — a rising talent, like herself. Together they made magic. LIFE magazine had assigned Shaw, one of their top young photographers, to shoot a feature on the production and he spent weeks with Audrey on and around the set. Shaw’s access to Hepburn, unheard of today, resulted in an amazing array of photos — over 60 rolls of film —that captured the budding actresses’ charm and grace on set and in everyday life. The images chronicled her life at the time: waking up at home, having her hair washed at the beauty parlor, reading, relaxing, studying her script, chatting with her costars and director, and acting in one of her most famous roles, a role for which she earned an Academy Award nomination. While the handful of photographs published in LIFE for the Sabrina article have lived on as beloved images of Hepburn, the majority of the negatives were misplaced and never published. Rediscovered over 50 years later, these never-before-seen photographs complete one of the most intimate looks at Hepburn’s youth and her rising star. Charmed by Audrey: Life on the Set of Sabrina (Insight Editions, April 2009) features over 150 of Shaw's photographs that uniquely capture Hepburn.
