Oh Rita…

Rita Hayworth (October 17, 1918 – May 14, 1987) was an American actress and dancer who attained fame during the 1940s not only as one of the era’s top musical stars, but also as the era’s defining sex symbol, most notably in the 1946 film Gilda. She is listed as one of American Film Institute’s (AFI) Greatest Stars of All Time.

Sorry, but compared to most of the actresses of today, this lady gets more attention out of just removing a glove than they can achieve losing their whole kit.


That’s Hedley…

Hedy Lamarr (November 9, 1913 – January 19, 2000) was an Austrian-born American actress and scientist. Though known primarily for her acting (she was a major MGM contract star), she also co-invented an early form of spread spectrum communications technology, a key to modern wireless communication.

One thing many people didn’t know about Lamar was that she came up with the idea of a radio signaling device that is now used in things such as cordless phones and military radios. She never received any money for the invention though, because it was first implemented after the patent had expired.

She wasn’t always Mrs. Munster…
