Re: Maureen O'Hara

Hedy Lamarr was not only gorgeous but smart too.


At the beginning of World War II, Lamarr and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, which used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers. Although the US Navy did not adopt the technology until the 1960s, the principles of their work are arguably incorporated into Bluetooth technology, and are similar to methods used in legacy versions of CDMA and Wi-Fi. This work led to their induction into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.

Re: Maureen O'Hara

How have I not found this thread? Clearly, (see left) I have a deep love of Jean Harlow. She was incredibly smart, funny and talented. She hated being a sex symbol and when invited (forced to go) to an event once was told to really vamp it up. She showed up in camping gear and set up a campsite in the middle of the party. She also had several star sapphire worth more than my life.

I also have a thing for Carole Lombard who hated Harlow due to her (Harlow) dating her former husband. Lombard went on to marry Jean's best friend Clark Gable. The two ladies have fighting star sapphire. They often threw out the weight to show who literally had the/ was the bigger star.
