Did you realize that, in addition to being one of the most beautiful stars of the golden age of Hollywood, Hedy Lamarr was also one of, if not the brightest. Literally.
Today’s Google doodle illustrates the amazing life of Hedy Lamarr and honors her place not only in Hollywood, but in the history books for her role as a scholar and inventor.
In an effort to help defeat the Nazis during WWII, Lamar and a colleague created a system that would go on to one day end up in every smartphone on the planet.
Pretty impressive, right?
All that and she can act a mean streak.0
