The story of the screen siren Hedy Lamarr, who shot to stardom in the early 1940s and at the same time, with composer George Antheil, created and patented her invention for frequency hopping in an effort to stop the Nazis in World War II. This visionary concept would supply the U.S. Navy with a secure remote-control guidance system for torpedoes, and become the forerunner of revolutionary wireless communications ("Wi-Fi") used globally by millions today.
