Of all the photos in the exhibit, the 1964 John Hamilton photo of Brigitte Bardot trying to cool off while shooting a film in Mexico is one of the most memorable. In sweltering Cuautla, Mexico, suffering from near-heatstroke, still she looks luminous.

“The unbearable heat continued throughout filming,” said Hamilton, “and the only respite allowed Brigitte was the little water bucket she used to cool her feet.”
