About the performer and performance (click for more at History Comes Alive)…
Portrayed by Judith Kalaora.
Who would have believed that “The Most Beautiful Woman in the World,” Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr, was a genuine ceiling-crasher scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionized modern communication, and made your cell phone, GPS, and Wi-Fi possible? But there’s no law that says an inventor can’t be beautiful.
The Transylvania Reinventing American Series includes Benjamin Franklin, Hedy Lamarr, Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla.
