The British answer to Marilyn Monroe.
The popularity of Sabrina in Velikobritanii 1950-60s was just incredible: every week she received thousands of letters from fans, men put up a fight to have the opportunity to see her at least briefly, and fees, the girls were just incredibly large. Sabrina became famous thanks to the participation in the filming of movies, but she did not know how to play, or sing, or even make replicas of the heroes.
In the 1950-60s the popular image of the “silly blonde” was in full swing. During this period, comedian Arthur ASKI started active search for girls for the role of the dumb blonde part of my show “Right before your eyes.” As he told live after a late dinner, which he ate cold steak and pickles, had a nightmare, if it crushes a huge female breast. In those very such a statement would cause a scandal, but on the contrary, it provoked a stir, and the Studio began to receive many letters with photos Busty contenders for the role.
Started this national hunt “is our answer to Marilyn Monroe.” To address the BBC has sent photos of the most attractive girls in the UK. But Arthur all the women appeared to be less than “bright,” until he finally saw a picture of the Normal six.
When the girl was invited for an interview Arthur hesitated. “She definitely had a beautiful figure and a pretty face… but she couldn’t play, sing, couldn’t dance, and even went awkward… And yet, she was exactly the person we were looking for.” Arthur gave a Normal stage name Sabrina, so her career and fame began.
Norma Ann six (Norma Ann Sykes) was born in a rather modest house in the suburbs of Manchester in a family of mechanics and seamstresses. Since childhood, Norma was engaged in swimming and in nine years had to compete on a par with the 15-year-old girls. However, when Norma was 14, she contracted polio and was forced to spend two years in the hospital. At the foot of the girls spent several operations, leaving the ankle area multiple scars. Unfortunately, this led to the fact that the Rule became limp.
To recover the muscle, the rate every day and went swimming in a heated pool. It is because of these workouts she developed unusual at that time, the figure at the waist in 48 cm, bust Standards were as much as 100 see Norma’s Mother quickly realized that looking like her daughter can achieve many things in the capital, so when the girl turned 16, mom and daughter went to London. There the Norm is often posed semi-Nude for various photographers, and she turned to modeling agent, who actually sent her the Arthur par.
For the BBC Sabrina has become a real goldmine: the response to each appearance of a girl was more than significant. She was invited to open stores, on TV shows, movies… Every time Sabrina appeared in public, was a huge crowd. For each such participation, she received quite a substantial amount, e.g., mere presence at the opening of the store in Sheffield Sabrina got 100 pounds, while the average salary at that time was 7.5 pounds in a week.
However, to say that she conquered the hearts of their talent not. Talent just Sabrina’s had enough. After the debut on BBC Sabrina took another series “Fast And Loose,” however bearing in mind the difficulties in working with the girl in a previous shoot, she requested to say a few lines, and they later duplicated another actress as Sabrina was given a Cockney accent. In the next film, “Rides Again” Sabrina said a few words, and in the subsequent “Blue Murder At St Trinian’s” and it was just lying with a book on the bed and did not speak.
Sabrina married a very wealthy gynecologist, and while they lived together, Sabrina was a true fairy-tale life: constant parties, social dinners, the stars among the guests; personal yellow-white Chevrolet with number S41 (it was the size of her bust), a few sports cars, private yacht Charter…
Sabrina has starred in several films, went to Australia, to Hollywood, but the interest in it outside of the UK was, to put it mildly, not very strong. For example, the film with its participation “the House of the black death” was so low quality that howled released in the US, only 34 years later after the release. However, it could be a reaction to the fact that Sabrina came to Cuba as a special guest of Fidel Castro in the formation of a new government.
Although, I must admit that even the British critics have not always endured her “talent”: the 1962 film “Satan in heels,” where Sabrina performed two songs didn’t even get a license for hire.
The real problems of the actress began when she decided to file for divorce from her husband to “get their money.” In the blink of an eye Sabrina suddenly found themselves without a home, without money and without friends. Her husband divorced her unilaterally depriving Sabrina any support. At the same time, the actress started to have problems with health – because of the huge bust Sabrina had severe back pain.
Sabrina moved to my mother in a small house in the suburbs of Hollywood. She turned to the surgeon to allow her back problems, and because of an error of the doctor the woman was left half paralyzed (she later sued the surgeon, but to get out of the wheelchair and could not). The mother cared for the daughter, until he died from heatstroke in the house had no air conditioning and my mother’s room just overheated in a hot California climate. Later, Sabrina has hired a worker to do repairs in the house and install air conditioners, but he received a large Deposit, left the house in a dilapidated condition and disappeared.
In the last years of his life Sabrina almost didn’t go anywhere. She’s manic I ordered things on the Internet, not being able to pay for them. In her house lived a homeless person, which began to grow in her garden marijuana (under California law it is not prohibited) and to sell to its house things. “She was a good, nice woman, recalls her neighbor. – But her head was obviously some problems.”
Norma Ann and six died in November 2016, when she was 80 years old. However this event was only a year later. All this time in her house continued to live homeless, her things gradually decay, and the house itself became almost uninhabitable. The man who looked after her in her last years, recalls how a few days before his death, Sabrina ordered the hairdresser that dyed her hair again blonde colour and curled her hair. “When I return to London, said Sabrina. I’ll show all those people who laughed at me. I didn’t know what I want. Now I know. I want respect. It took me too much time. Just a little respect.”
Relatives of Sabrina’s left, so her house even now continue to live homeless. “It’s amazing, says her former neighbor. Norm was a real Cinderella, but her life ended not in a Palace but in a pumpkin.”
