「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

Sabrina 的迷思

Sabrina 的迷思



不知為何我還是唸書時代,從沒有接觸過 Sabrina 這個名字,同學朋友都沒有人用這個名字。故此,第一次聽到 Sabrina 驚為天人,怎世間上,有個這樣清新的名字呢?




【維基百科】Sabrina is a 1954 comedy-romance film directed by Billy Wilder, adapted for the screen by Wilder, Samuel A. Taylor, and Ernest Lehman from Taylor's play Sabrina Fair (in the UK, the movie has the title Sabrina Fair).

It stars Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, and William Holden. This was Wilder's last film released by Paramount Pictures, ending a 12-year relation with Wilder and the company.

In 2002, Sabrina was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".



1995 翻拍的 Sabrina 。。。。。



換了 Julia Ormond 演 Sabrina,看過了DVD 完全不能接受,真的不明白,casting 是怎麼做的,就是因為一度濃眉? 那個年代有甚麽其他女星呢?是因為有 Audrey Hepburn 的朱玉在前,女星們不敢碰這個角色,紛紛辭演,最後落在 Julia Ormond 身上呢?我不知道!


【維基百科】Sabrina is a 1995 romantic comedy-drama film adapted by Barbara Benedek and David Rayfiel, based on the 1954 screenplay of the same name, which in turn was based upon a play titled Sabrina Fair.

It was directed by Sydney Pollack, and stars Harrison Ford as Linus Larrabee, Julia Ormond as Sabrina and Greg Kinnear (in his first starring film role) as David Larrabee.



再後的一個 Sabrina,其實就是我第一次接觸 Sabrina 這個令我驚為天人清新脫俗的名字,Sabrina the teenage witch,但我是不喜歡看的,因為這位矮小而仍然有 baby fat 的女星,實在不可愛,更不耐看!




Sabrina 可能是由神級的 柯德莉夏萍 演出,便將 Sabrina equates Audrey Hepburn,每次聽到有 Sabrina 的名字,都想看看她的容貌,不過總是失望的多!


【Babyname.com】Sabrina \s(a)-bri-na, sab-rina\ as a girl's name is pronounced sa-BREE-nah.

It is of Celtic origin. Mythology: the name of a Celtic maiden in a Welsh tale. In Celtic legend, Sabrina was the character who gave her name to the river Severn (in England).

Known in modern times through the play and movie "Sabrina Fair". The name was used in the 19th and 20th centuries.



原來 Sabrina 是 威爾斯 的名字 from a Welsh Tale!!!


重溫多一次 Audrey Hepburn 的 Sabrina 才收筆

我也很喜歡她呢!不單樣子高貴漂亮,而且心地也善良。我覺得到現在還沒有一位女星能代替她。

柯德莉 夏萍 的風采,我只能在DVD中看到!
我生得晚柯德莉 夏萍 或 柯德莉 赫本 的電影﹐我只看過一套﹐ 英文名是“Always,” 1989 亦是她最後的演出。Directed by : Steven Spielberg,Starring: Richard Dreyfuss, Holly Hunter﹐Audrey Hepburn.

柯德莉 夏萍﹐已經很老﹐無復當年之勇。我記得她是那個天使﹐幫助死後的 Dreyfuss 撮合他留下的未婚妻 Hunter, 和 Dryfuss 認可的男人, 成為一對 。而他的靈魂只可以 "Always," 成為她的 Guardian Angel.
