Dec. 4, 2017 Do It Anyway

On Dec. 4, 2017 NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro reported “In ‘Bombshell,’ The Double Identity Of Hollywood Star Hedy Lamarr.” This new documentary is about Lamarr’s careers as actor and inventor. Escaping the Nazis in the 1930s, Lamar became a Hollywood star. She also invented a frequency hopping technique used for weapons and telecommunications.

Alexandra Dean, the director of “Bombshell” said “Even if you feel that you’ve been kicked in the teeth, and the world never gave you the applause you deserved because you did something amazing and it was not recognized, do it anyway. Do it anyway because it’s in changing the world that you’ll find meaning at the end of your life. It’s in trying to make your mark. And I love that, and I think everybody should listen to that – you know, that it’s in the work, the doing, that you’ll find meaning, not in the applause.”

Do it anyway.
