Bombshell: The Hedy Lamar Story
Friday, October 20, 7:00pm – Purple Room
Startlet. Screen Siren. The Most Beautiful Woman in the World. All phrases used to describe 1940’s Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr. Known for her matchless beauty and electric screen persona, Lamarr’s legion of fans never knew she also possessed such a beautiful mind. An Austrian Jewish émigré who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic inventions by night, Lamarr came up with a “secret communication system” to help the Allies to beat the Nazis.
