I have recently read about actress and mathematician Hedy Lamarr. You should too. Among her feats:
- The invention of the frequency-hopping spread spectrum, a means of transmitting radio signals which is the basis of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology.
- Stealing a bunch of gold and diamond jewelry from her Nazi husband and and fleeing to Paris disguised as a French maid.
- Being the first actress to appear fully nude and depict an orgasm in a movie.
We should all learn about Hedy Lamarr in school.
"[director] david slade and i had long conversations about the kubrick-ian feel of this show. we are telling a story of a man who makes his living with his imagination who slowly loses his mind over the course of the season. we are telling a version of [the shining], except the guy is not an alcoholic.”
