“Hope and curiosity about the future seemed better than guarantees. That’s the way I was. The unknown was always so attractive to me… and still is.”
An incredibly bright Star, Hedy Lamarr is one of my all time heroes and role models. A masterpiece of beauty and genius – a highly evolved woman who changed the world as we know it. Today was her birthday, and as worthy of celebration as any sun rise and moon set.
In the early 1930’s, while working in Germany, Hedy Lamarr starred in the Czech/German film Ecstasy. She marked the first cinematic appearance of on screen sex as well as the first enactment of a female orgasm in a movie.
Crossing social boundaries and breaking cultural taboos – Hedy was the female inventor responsible for Frequency Hopping and Spread-Spectrum technology.
