The striking movie star may be most well-known for her roles in the 1940s Oscar-nominated films ‘Algiers’ and ‘Sampson and Delilah.’ But it was her technical mind that is her greatest legacy. The film chronicles the patent that LaMarr filed for frequency-hopping technology in 1941 that became a precursor to the secure wi-fi, GPS and Bluetooth now used by billions of people around the world. Beauty and brains!

I'd rather wear jewels in my hair than anywhere else. The face should have the advantage of this brilliance. -Hedy Lamarr
