This Czech/German film from 1933 is considered to be the first theatrically released, non-pornographic film to depict a female orgasm from oral sex. One of the most remarkable things about this film is that it portrays female sexuality as a positive and healthy aspect of life, and does not slut-shame its female protagonist for having sexual desires. Which is rarely seen even in today’s cinema, and was nothing short of shocking in the 1930s. The film also featured a brief nude scene of its 19 year-old star, Hedy Lamarr.
Hedy Lamarr was a fucking genius, in addition to being super cute. I think the reason she’s not as well known as Hepburn or Bacall is that we just can’t believe she could exist.
She also co-invented a version of frequency hopping during WWII, which was intended to assist with torpedoes and was the very early beginning of stuff like bluetooth and wifi. She was indeed a fucking genius and deserves to be more well-known.
