good point!!i totally agree with you.

lacefab,i see a resemblance between hedy lamarr and vivien leigh too.the dark hair,light eyes,an almost "kittenish" grace..both were flawless beauties.
vivien was a much better actress though....at least in my opinion.what iīve seen of hedy so far didnīt impress me much .
but perhaps iīve watched the wrong films,i donīt know .

i hope this pic hasnīt been posted before:

actually IA with you, Hedy had a nice screen presence but she wasn't a strong actress like Vivien.

Vivien and Hedy are often compared actually physically, yeah, because of the dark hair and light eyes combination......

Don't really think Paulette Goddard looks like her but in that photo I can see what you mean.

She's beautiful but her eyebrows freak me out. She's proof that God does give with two hands.

Did you know that the original idea and patent that led to cellular phone technology comes from the movie star, Hedy Lamarr?

She knew a great deal about weaponry by listening to her first husband, Fritz Mandl, an armament manufacturer. She left her husband when he became increasingly involved in deals with the Nazis and made her way to London, then on to Hollywood.
She'd kept her mind active on what she'd heard about the problems of radio controlled missiles and how easy it was to block the simple signal. She realized that if the signal jumped from frequency to frequency quickly (like changing channels on a TV or radio) and both sender and receiver changed in the same order, then the signal could never be blocked by someone "listening in" who didn't know how the frequency was changing.

In those days before the transistor was invented it was difficult to design a way for this to be accomplished. Composer George Antheil suggested using something similar to piano rolls, from player pianos, to keep both sides in synch. Together, he and Lamarr patented the "Secret Communication System" in 1942. At that time the idea of using the paper rolls was too cumbersome to be practical.

When the transistor did become available the Navy used the idea in secure military communications and when transistors became really cheap the idea was used in cellular phone technology. By the time the Navy used the idea, the original patent had expired and Lamarr and Antheil never received any royalty payments for their idea.

In 1997 she was honored with an award at the Computers, Freedom, and Privacy conference for "blazing new trails on the electronic frontier." Hedy Lamarr died on January 19, 2000.

In 1942, at the height of her Hollywood career, she patented a frequency-switching system for torpedo guidance that was two decades ahead of its time.

love that!!! She was incredibly beautiful, but I'd like her for that comment alone even if she wasn't

Thanks for posting! She definately was a 'glamour' girl but she did make it look so effortless.

Found a few photos of Hedy on ebay...

Which movie of hers would people recommend? I kind of want to see Algiers because I love Charles Boyer, but I wanted to know what others saw and liked.
