Hedy!The Life and Inventions of Hedy Lamarr

Hedy Lamarr, glamorous siren of the silver screen, was more than the most beautiful woman in the world. She invented Frequency Hopping and Spread Spectrum Technology that make the world of wireless communication tick. From Austria to Hollywood, WWII, torpedoes, ecstasy, and intrigue to the very cell phone in your pocket, she was there!

HEDY! The Life & Inventions of Hedy Lamarr explores the life, inventions, and person of Hedy Lamarr, Viennese-born Hollywood film star of the 1930s-1950s. Known as The Most Beautiful Woman in the World, Hedy Lamarr stored away knowledge of munitions while married to an Austrian arms dealer, Fritz Mandl. She employed this knowledge to support the US Navy’s war effort during WWII by inventing The Secret Communication System with composer George Antheil, to make torpedoes more accurate. Also referred to as Frequency Hopping or Spread Spectrum Technology, her invention is used today in cell phones, WiFi, CDMA, GPS, Bluetooth and a myriad of other wireless systems.

Having studied Astrophysics with dreams of becoming an astronaut, Heather Massie marries her loves of art and science in the person of Hedy Lamarr. She brings Hedy to life while interacting with the audience, and unearths the truth behind how such a glamorous actress could create an invention which is ubiquitous today. Massie says, “I use the story of the unexpected genius of Hedy Lamarr to inspire the audience to find ways each day to make the world a better place, and to encourage young women in endeavors of science and technology.”

Heather Massie stars as Hedy Lamarr. Director & Artistic Consultation – Blake Walton, Artistic Consultation – Leslie Kincaid Burby, Projections – Jim Marlowe & Charley Marlowe, Sound Design – Jacob Subotnick, Dialects – Page Clements, Technical Assistance – Dan Leary, Photography – Al Foote III, Charley Marlowe & Monica Callan.
