Hedy Lamarr : The Heavenly Body

The Heavenly Body was on TCM the other night and in the spirit of the Perseid Meteor Showers this month (peaking last night and tonight) why not some lovely and brilliant Hedy Lamarr for a Friday night Rule 5.

Is that our WJJ Hoge showing Hedy the stars? 

Not from The Heavenly Body, but I liked this image

Rule 5 and FMJRA


  1. It's not *Hedy*, it's *Hedley*. Hedley Lamarr.

    1. Doesn't look a bit like Harvey Krillman.

    2. It's "Hedy" which is short for Hedwig.

      Take a look at the movie poster. Would the Hollywood marketing folks really misspell the name of their leading lady?

      IMDB also has her as "Hedy." And in any old radio show or movie where she was mentioned by name, there was never an L in her name either.

    3. Mason, Leland is referring to a scene in Blazing Saddles where Harvey Korman says those lines (his character is "Hedley Lamarr."

    4. And since I've never seen blazing saddles, it went wooosh right over my head. Thanks for the info on the reference.
