    In the 50's her name was magic. A sad ending.

          I don't understand the logic of taking her stage name from that film Sabrina starring Audrey Hepburn.

          Hepburn was anorexic.

            In 1959 Triumph entered modified TR3s in the Le Man 24 hour race powered by experimental twin OHC engines which had bulbous covers on the end of each camshaft. Needless to say they were known as Sabrinas!

              Do you know that for a fact or are you presuming?

              Hepburn was anorexic.
              You state it as if it were a fact. It's a rumour. She was severely malnourished during the Nazi occupation of Holland in WW2 and suffered permanent damage as a result.

                Sabrina was a Stockport gal - and patron of the beautiful Plaza Theatre!

                  I was a Stockport boy, although born and raised in Cheadle Heath, which is quite some distance from where she was born in Heaviley.

                    In a similar vein, the famous Hawker Hunter jet fighter of the RAF in the 1950s/60s had two bulged pods to collect the link and empty cases for the aircrafts cannon armament and these were inevitably christened "Sabrina's"
