What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and '40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and Bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII.

beauty can be both a blessing and a curse.
beauty opens doors but may not allow brains and personal voice to follow without a struggle for recognition
in the end her idea was successful beyond her imagination

A very interesting documentary that revealed how rounded a person Hedy Lamarr. She was very independent and tried to do things her own way but the powers that be were able to stymie her. In her own case, her beauty was a curse.

Well worth watching. Too bad recognition came so late.

I am always amazed at what a beautiful woman is perceived to look like in the eyes of the world. This woman, although she had more opportunity than most women have followed the money until the next opportunity presented itself.

Am always interested in true stories and biograpies. Went through a lot of husbands. Comments by famous actors interesting. A beauty from Austria.

Very interesting look at the life and career of famed beauty and actress, Hedy Lamar.
Of course the hook is that the beauty was a gifted inventor and the story of her contributions to today's technology is fascinating. One of those "who would believe it" tales!

Hedy Lamarr invented - WHAT?! The technology behind WIFI?! You've got to be kidding! But no! Don't miss this fascinating documentary about an actress who accomplished more than anyone was ever aware. A pretty face, for sure, but let's not let that get in the way of the totally unexpected.
