Austrian Actress and Inventor Hedy Lamarr

Hedy Lamarr (9 November 1914 – 19 January 2000) was an Austrian actress and inventor, celebrated for her great beauty, who was a contract star of MGM's "Golden Age."
She and composer George Antheil invented an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.
When Lamarr worked with Max Reinhardt in Berlin, he called her the "most beautiful woman in Europe" due to her "strikingly dark exotic looks", a sentiment widely shared by her audiences and critics.
