Hedy Lamarr and Howard Hughes' Relationship

Hedy Lamarr and Howard Hughes' Relationship

Hedy Lamarr and aviation tycoon Howard Hughes were romantically involved and bonded over their love of invention. Hughes gave her complete access to his team of scientists to help her execute her inventions. Lamarr designed a new wing shape for Hughes' planes to make them more aerodynamic. This, as revealed in the film, is only the tip of the iceberg when it came to Lamarr’s pre-war inventions.

Lorraine Hansberry - S30 E5

At a time when women, people of color, and homosexuals were confined to the margins of society, Lorraine Hansberry (1930-1965), best known for A Raisin in the Sun, boldly challenged U.S. society to live up to its ideals. The film tells the dramatic story of the young, gifted and black woman who chose words to fight injustice on stage and off.
