Tinseltown Inventor: The Most Beautiful Woman in the World—Hedy Lamarr

by Patricia Pereira
March 4, 2018

Join actress and historical interpreter, Judith Kalaora as she introduces you to a woman clouded in a fantasy world that only Tinseltown could create.

“Tinseltown Inventor: The Most Beautiful Woman in the World”—Hedy Lamarr.  Sunday, March 18 at 2:30 at the Holliston Historical Society.  In celebration of Women’s History Month. Suitable for Ages 13 and up.

Upon hearing the name Hedy Lamarr, whom do you see?  A smoldering, bejeweled temptress perched on velour cushions in the 1949 classic Samson and Delilah?  Or a demure and professionally-clad inventor embarking on scientific ideas that were generations ahead of her time?

Hedy Lamarr was not only a great starlet in Hollywood’s Golden Age, she was also devoted to helping the Allies beat the Nazi forces in World War II.  Whether selling war bonds for $50,000 a kiss or inventing a secret communication system with the help of American composer George Antheil, she knows she’s more than just a glamorous girl!

Join actress and historical interpreter, Judith Kalaora as she introduces you to a woman clouded in a fantasy world that only Tinseltown could create.  Watch as this young Austrian refugee transforms to become The Most Beautiful Woman in the World, all the while inventing technology that would become the forerunner to GPS, WIFI, and all the wireless telecommunications using Spread Spectrum Technology.

There is no charge for this performance.
