I've always been fascinated by the golden age of Hollywood. The stars and fashion of the time seem to me to be incredibly stylish and authentic. It's even hard for me to name someone because they are all incredible.
But today I was inspired by Hedy Lamar.
I recommend a Netflix movie that I have been watched several times “ Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story “ .
Some interesting facts about her: *The real name is Hedwig Eve Maria Kissler.
*Born in Vienna, Austria into a Jewish family, her father was born in Lviv (my home town as well ) at the time belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. *She was made famous by the Czechoslovak-Austrian film “Ecstasy” . The ten-minute scene of nude bathing in a forest lake is quite innocent by the standards of the 21st century, but in 1933 it caused a storm of emotions. The picture was banned from showing in a number of countries. *In 1937, she escaped from her first husband and, on a ship from London to New York, met with MGM studio founder Louis Mayer and signed a contract with him. * In addition to the movie, Hedy Lamarr was engaged in inventive activities. In 1942, she patented a system that allows remote control of torpedoes. The value of the technology of "jumping frequencies" was evaluated only many years later.
But after half a century, this patent has become the basis for communication with the extended-spectrum, which is now used everywhere, from mobile phones to Wi-Fi.
I hope I inspired you to learn even more about this incredible woman ❤️
