Unrelated to movies, in 2014, the National Inventors Hall of Fame posthumously inducted the actress Hedy Lamarr for her numerous achievements in this field. It was one of many honors she was awarded, almost none of which were or are known to fans of her film career. They were completely different worlds. In one, she was known as a world class beauty who starred in movies. In the other, she developed a pioneering radio guidance system for munitions involving “frequency hopping signals,” without which, today’s cell phones would not work.
