Sabrina Pop Art
Stylish pop art print of the British blonde bombshell and glamour model Sabrina born Norma Ann Sykes.

Also available as part of a group of 12.

In many ways, Sabrina was ahead of her time as an “influencer”, spearheading celebrity culture and product endorsements.

Glamourous blonde bombshells seemed to be a staple of TV comedy in the 1950s & 1960s. Like Margaret Nolan‘s partnership with Spike Milligan, and Liz Fraser‘s collaboration with Tony Hancock, Sabrina had a long association with a comedian, Arthur Askey, to the point that it became a joke in a Hancock episode, and in “The Goon Show” with Peter Sellers (“by the measurements of Sabrina!”).

From 1955 to 1959, she appeared in his show “Before Your Very Eyes” which made her a household name.

As her celebrity status grew, she was in high demand to endorse a wide variety of products. Sabrina appeared in advertisements to promote televisions, cars, slide projectors, nylons, drinks, and even had a new model of caravan named after her.

As well as modelling and being a general celebrity, Sabrina appeared in several films, starting in 1955 with the crime drama “Stock Car” with Frank Thornton.

Joining her TV partner Arthur Askey, her next film was “Ramsbottom Rides Again”, which also featured Sid James, followed by an appearance in “Blue Murder at St Trinian’s” with Joyce Grenfell, Terry-Thomas, & Alastair Sim.

After an appearance in the Norman Wisdom film “Just My Luck” with Margaret Rutherford & Joan Sims, Sabrina was reunited with Arthur Askey in “Make Mine a Million”.

Featuring Bernard Cribbins, Barbara Windsor, & Gordon Jackson, the Elstree-made comedy “Make Mine a Million” opened in some regional cinemas from the 22nd of February 1959 ahead of opening in London cinemas on the 1st of March 1959.

Horror and exploitation films were to follow, including “Satan in High Heels”, “House of the Black Death”, “The Ice House”, and ending with the Mexican Western “The Phantom Gunslinger”.

In 1974, to conform to American safety standards, British cars had to be fitted with two large bumpers. The protuberances were highly noticeable, particularly on sleek sports car models, and the motoring press nicknamed them “Sabrinas”.
