Hedy Lamar. If she is remembered today, it is probably as a screen siren in the golden days of Hollywood. Written and performed by Heather Massie, this award-winning one-woman show highlights that she was much more than that. It explores the life, inventions, and person of Lamarr,a Viennese-born Hollywood film star of the 1930s-50s.
“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!”
The performance begins at 7pm tonight at the Argenta Community Theatre. It is presented by ACANSA Arts Festival.
