The ashes of Lady Hedy

12 Nov


Dear fellow Flynn fans,

the ashes of Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, also known as Hedy Lamarr, have finally been buried in their homesoil two days prior of the 100th birthday anniversary. Half of them had been scattered in the Viennese Forest some 8 years ago by her children. Austrian documentary “Calling Hedy Lamarr” shows in part the odyssey of the remains of the actress once deemed “The most beautiful woman of Hollywood”.

The city of Vienna sponsored an honorary grave at the Wiener Zentralfriedhof, burial ground of Ludwig van Beethoven, Johann Strauss and Franz Schubert. The grave lies in the proximity of another actor great “the devil`s general” Curd Jürgens.  Anthony Loder, author of his mother`s biography “Hedy Darling” attended the rites. It has yet to receive a tombstone.

    I’ve added this to Member Chat since it’s unrelated to Flynn. If you see another category your post could go into as well as the Main Page please tick that category, or categories, to help fill out those subjects. :-)
