Heddy Lamarr was that rather unique combination of brains and beauty. Raven-haired with a virtually symmetric face, she was a sight to behold, a pure vision that belied her rather pedestrian acting ability. The screen siren, known for remarking that “any girl can be glamorous — all she has to do is stand still and look stupid,” was in fact, highly intelligent.

Fleeing from Nazi-controlled Europe, she starred in blockbuster films and went on to create “spread spectrum” technology, a key innovation that laid the groundwork for mobile devices today. Her most interesting film role would have been autobiographical, but sadly she remains vastly under appreciated as a scientist in the 21st century.
