JAN.22-Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

Known for her matchless beauty and electric screen persona, Lamarr’s legion of fans never knew she possessed such a beautiful mind. An Austrian Jewish émigré who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic inventions by night, Lamarr came up with a “secret communication system” to help the Allies to beat the Nazis. Her invention for "frequency-hopping," was developed after hearing that Allied forces' radio-controlled torpedoes could be thrown off course.
