Welcome to “Woman Interrupted – A Kitbasher’s Guide to Hedy Lamarr.”

Not a typical fan site, this website is dedicated to all things Hedy Lamarr; kit-bashing her life of interruptions as an inventor / actress with Corel Corporation, Andy Warhol & Valerie Solanas, to name a few.  The website is filled with content including hundreds of colorful graphics and many other multimedia elements.

Users are invited to submit their own Hedy Lamarr inspired, kit-bashed articles to any viable subject to be included in this shareware project. 

But that’s a subject for another time!
