1. Audrey Hepburn, on the terrace of the Hotel Hassler in Rome, reading the telegram announcing her best-actress award, for The Nun’s Story (1959), from the New York Film Critics Circle, 1960.

    The book and film were based upon the life of Marie Louise Habets, a Belgian nurse who similarly spent time as a nun. Hepburn met Habets while preparing for the role, and Habets later helped nurse Hepburn back to health following her near-fatal horse-riding accident on the set of the 1960 film, The Unforgiven.
