Hedy Lamarr

Season 2, Episode 7,  Jul 30, 2021, 02:42 PM

In this episode, host Charlie Connelly looks at the life of Austrian-born American actress, inventor, and film producer Hedy Lamarr. British actor George Sanders once said that “she was so beautiful, that when she walked into a room, everyone would stop talking”. But, despite being one of the most famous women of the golden age of cinema, it is only recently that she has received credit for some of her greatest achievements, her contribution to modern technology. As you listen to this episode on your electronic device, you owe Lamarr a debt of gratitude. To this day the question remains, was she an actor who invented, or an inventor who acted.
