Hedy Lamarr Late 1940s
Feast your eyes on these gorgeous images. This is Hedy Lamarr at the peak of her career. Sadly, as humans, we recognize we are vulnerable to the passing of time. But, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could make time stand still?
As time passed, Hedy lamented her lost youth. Facing the reality of aging was especially difficult for her. Though she lived to be 85, her life was not without its drama and scandal. At one time she said, “I figured out that I had made – and spent – some 30 million dollars. Yet earlier that day, I had been unable to pay for a sandwich at Schwab’s Drug Store.”
Hedy Lamarr wore her hair in a style which framed her exquisite face. Many actresses of this time recognized that this style would be flattering for most faces and they copied Hedy.
If Hedy were alive today, she would see that people only recognize her as a gorgeous screen beauty and she would know that she has been recognized for her contribution to science and technology. She was a heroine and she would have been proud.
Hedy Lamarr Quotes:
“Because you don’t live near a bakery doesn’t mean you have to go without cheesecake.”
“I have not been that wise. Health I have taken for granted. Love I have demanded, perhaps too much and too often. As for money, I have only realized its true worth when I didn’t have it.”
“Compromise and tolerance are magic words. It took me 40 years to become philosophical.”
