Hedy Lamarr, often proclaimed “the most beautiful woman in the world,” the 26-yr-old Lamarr was thriving in Hollywood when, in September 1940, Nazi U-boats hunted down & sank a cruise ship trying to evacuate 90 British schoolchildren to Canada. 77 drowned in the bleak north Atlantic. Lamarr, a Jewish immigrant from Nazi-occupied Austria, was outraged. She fought back by applying her engineering skills to development of a sonar sub-locator used in the Atlantic to the good of both the US & UK.
