Lamarr to be honored locally
March 10, 2023
(JNS) - An historical marker will be dedicated on Sunday, March 12, in Casselberry to recognize and honor Jewish American actress Hedy Lamarr.
Lamarr is considered by many Hollywood historians as one of the most beautiful and best actresses of the Golden Age of Hollywood. She made multiple films opposite some of the greatest Hollywood male talents-Clark Gable, Walter Pidgeon and Spencer Tracy, to name a few.
She was a Jewish refugee from Austria who escaped the Holocaust after having known Benito Mussolini and Joseph Goebbels before the war in Austrian high society circles.
