Actress of film "Conspiratori" + WWII involvement

Good morning all,

This article is multi-era, pre, during and post WWII.

Hedy was inspiration for "Snow White" and "Catwoman".

Besides film fame, she was an inventor. Article tells of her work work re radio guidance transmitters involving torpedos ("frequency hopping").

Note the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis and Smithsonian.com writing "blockade line" and not the JFK term "quarantine".

Hedy helped in selling war bonds; other war efforts.

I understand term "frequency hopping" but cannot grasp "sultriness".
