Hedy Lamarr Promo Shot For Ziegfeld Girl


Hedy also contributed to the invention of WIFI...
 Lamarr and her business partner, the composer George Antheil, were awarded a patent in 1942 for a "secret communication system". It was meant for radio-guided torpedoes, and the pair gave to the US Navy. It languished in their files for decades before eventually becoming a constituent part of GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology.
