Hedi Lamar : icon, immigrant, inventor
I haven't seen this movie yet but it looks terrific (but I'm a fan for biographies) - it seems she was quite the scientist and had a lot of great ideas. There's an interview with her from 1969 on utube which is terrific. She is the kind of person who wasn't wasting any time in their life, using every bit to find and do more. Her interests are vast and she even helped her boyfriend, Howard Hughes build a faster aircraft with ideas she had about the wing span, which she picked up from watching birds and fish and there you go... Howard made his planes faster.

and this fantastic clip from the Merv Griffin Show
She seems like a fascinating woman.
