Ida Lupino. Great 40's actress AND one of the pioneer female film directors in Hollywood. Classy dame.

Her first directing job came when the director of the 1949 film, "Not Wanted," fell ill. In 1950, Ida directed the film, "Outrage" which dealt with the then controversial subject of rape. In 1953, she was the first woman to direct a film noir, "The Hitch-Hiker." During the 1950s, Lupino remained one of the only female directors in Hollywood, and was only the second woman to be inducted into the Director's Guild.

Vivien Leigh. 24th (and 12th) actress to win the Academy Awards' Best Actress Oscar (Streetcar Named Desire, 1951).

Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000), actress and inventor. Mathematically talented,she and composer George Antheil invented an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.
