Paramount loves Sabrina

Everyone falls for Sabrina. It was true forty-seven years ago, it was true two years ago, and it’s true today. Now the 1999 version of the classic love story will get its chance to shine thanks to the efforts of Paramount Home Entertainment.

A contemporary updating of the 1954 film by director Billy Wilder, Sabrina is a modern-day fairy tale about the art of love and the art of the deal. Linus Larrabee is a busy tycoon who has no room for love in his appointment book. But when a romance between his “tennis-anyone” brother and Sabrina, daughter of the family chauffeur, threatens one of Linus’ business deals, the CEO clears his schedulre for some ruthlessness. He courts Sabrina, intending to drop her when the deal closes. Will “the worlds only living heart donor” discover his heart?

Sadly, unlike the original version of the film, which has been available from Paramount since April, the remake of “Sabrina” will contain no special features save for a theatrical trailer. The disc will however carry a Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Surround track and a new anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film.

The comedy that remains ever fresh will return on January 15, 2002. The suggested retail price is $24.99.
