Lamarr and Hogarth

One of the most beautiful women to ever grace the screen, Hedy Lamarr was born in Vienna in 1914. Hedy was also a talented inventor who developed a spread spectrum technique , without which the modern wireless communication would be impossible.
No wonder that even comic book artists, consciously or not, took her as a "model" for their comics. It seems that Burne Hogarth (1911 – 1996), the famous American cartoonist, illustrator, educator, author and theoretician, best known for his Tarzan comic strip, fancied the gorgeous looking actress and depicted her in his comics.

Hedy: 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 realised its true worth when I didn't have it.

Hedy: I advise everybody not to save: spend your money. Most people save all their lives and leave it to somebody else. Money is to be enjoyed.

Hedy: American men, as a group, seem to be interested in only two things, money and breasts. It seems a very narrow outlook.

Hedy: The ladder of success in Hollywood is usually a press agent, actor, director, producer, leading man; and you are a star if you sleep with each of them in that order. Crude, but true.

Hedy: I would tell anyone who wants something from someone else to feign not wanting it. People are perverse. If you show great affection to them, they'll run the other way.
