Antheil, George. Bad Boy of Music. Samuel French, 1945. Book.
This book, written by a close, respected friend of Hedy Lamarr, effectively demonstrates the type of relationship Lamarr and Antheil share. As well, the book further outlines the first-hand experiences of Hedy Lamarr’s mind and way of thinking. I found this book useful because of the insight it gave to Hedy Lamarr’s character. Antheil describes events leading up to, and during, the invention of “frequency hopping”, and he further goes on to describe, in-depth, his continued relationship with Lamarr in later years.

This website discusses the play “Frequency Hopping”, based on Hedy Lamarr’s inventing career with composer George Antheil. The play is solely based around the relationship that Hedy and George shared, and outlines some suspicions about a romance instead of only a professional partnership. This source was of extreme importance to me, as it provided researchers’ and playwriters’ opinions on the type of relationship that George and Hedy might have shared.
