Episode 24 - Hedy Lamarr

In this episode, writer and translator Isabel Fargo Cole tells the tale of lovely, lonely, and litigious HEDY LAMARR. Born Hedwig Kiesler, as a Jewish refugee from Vienna HEDY was re-vamped for Hollywood and dubbed “the world’s most beautiful woman” by director Louis B. Mayer. The glamorous exotic image and the resulting unimaginative acting roles quite bored her, leaving her lonesome, but with time to develop her hobby — inventing things. HEDY’s most successful – eventually – was a frequency-hopping signal for radio-controlled torpedoes, so that they that could not be tracked or jammed. The US Navy did not implement it during WWII, but it was used from 1962 on, and is now part of Bluetooth technology. Lamarr has a star on Hollywood Boulevard and a number of inventor’s awards.
