Hedy Lamarr is co-inventor (with George Antheil) of "Spread Spectrum Communications" which is now known as frequency hopping, the basis for wireless communications in the 21st century. She was privy to theoretical ideas about the technique while still in Europe before she fled to America to avoid the Nazis.
The Strange Woman - 1946
Edgar Ulmer directed this noir-mystery film in which Hedy Lamarr performs all the heavy lifting, portraying an unusual woman with an assortment of quirks and psychological leanings that lead to scheming and murder, but also formula-defying episodes of kindness and brief efforts at self-understanding.
