Far Better... or Worse?


Remaking a classic can be dicey.

Sometimes it's best to leave something 
sitting in the rose colored remembrances.

{Because maybe Crystal Pepsi wasn't actually all that awesome...}

This is especially true when it comes to the big screen.

The 1954 movie, Sabrina, originally starred

...was remade in the 1990's 
under the original title with 

Both movies are split with scenes of splendor
in Paris & Long Island-
and both have perfectly casted stars for the roles.



I have to admit, I like the newer version.

 I saw the newer one first,
and it wasn't until for several years after 
that I even knew of the original,
so my bias was already set.



Have you seen Sabrina?

Which version do you prefer?

Audrey & Humphrey
or
Julia & Harrison?

{or is it something you prefer to click past when it's on...}
