Inventor, actress and LIFE legend Hedy Lamarr (Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler) was born 105 years ago today, Nov. 9, 1914 in Vienna. Austria-Hungary. Lamarr’s beauty made it difficult to get much recognition for her brains. Along with the composer George Antheil, she invented and patented a frequency-hopping technology that allowed missiles to go undetected. Though not implemented in time for use during WWII, it did play a role in the Cold War, even contributing to the deescalation of the Cuban Missile Crisis. She is pictured here in 1938 taken by one of the 4 original LIFE photographers, Alfred Eisenstaedt. (Alfred Eisenstaedt—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images) #LIFElegends #HedyLamarr
