Audrey Hepburn and sardines


[Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina Fairchild in Sabrina (dir. Billy Wilder, 1954). Click for a larger view.]

Linus Larrabee (Humphrey Bogart) has been looking through the cabinets in the company offices. There must be something to eat. Tomato juice, puffed rice, sardines, tomato juice, tomato juice. Sabrina appears lost in meditation as she holds a can of sardines.

Huh...
Do you think this means something? Like, she's grown up poor and has eaten a lot of these...?

She’s the chauffeur’s daughter, living in servants’ quarters on an estate, so I suspect her life has been more comfortable than that. And she’s been in Paris for two years. I’d like to think she’s thinking deeply about sardines, but I think her introspective look here has more to do with affairs of the heart.

At first I read the title of the movie as Sardines. I need a vacation. ;)

I am imagining a Pixar movie.

Omega-3 fatty oils in sardines are good for affairs of the heart.

Oil keep that in mind.
