Who is Hedy Lamarr?

Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-born American actor and inventor who, after tricking her then-husband Friedrich Mandl escaped from pre-war Vienna and moved to America. The late actor went on to become a box office sensation and was considered to be one of the biggest stars of the 1930s and 1940s, often being billed as the world’s most beautiful woman. Lamarr has appeared in classic films like 1940’s Boom Town alongside Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, and Spencer Tracy, 1941’s Ziegfeld Girl, with Judy Garland and Lana Turner. 

However, her biggest hit was when she played Delilah in Samson and Delilah. It was a massive commercial success and had earned two Oscar nominations. Lamarr was also a prolific scientist and inventor, despite having no formal training. She worked on numerous things such as improved stoplights. She had even suggested that Howard Hughes make his fledgling aeroplanes more aerodynamic. Her most popular invention was the frequency-hopping system, originally designed to prevent remote-controlled torpedos from being jammed. This technology would be crucial in the creation of Wi-Fi, GPS navigation, and Bluetooth devices.
