Leo Fuchs manages to capture Audrey Hepburn looking unaffected by the 130-degree heat of the Belgian Congo. Unlike some of her co-stars who suffered heatstrokes, Audrey credited her nun’s habit with protecting her from the heat during filming. She did, however succumb to a terrible case of kidney stones upon returning to Rome to finish the arduous 132-day shoot. Once fully recovered, Audrey finished The Nun’s Story and was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her performance as Sister Luke. Photographed in 1958.
