Intriguing for those who enjoy (& sometimes copy) the iconic “Bride of Frankestein” look ~ Elsa’s wig was actually on an auburn hair base, not black.
With black & white films, people often forget all of the colours that were actually in use on set, since pure black & white read so harshly on film. I remember carefully studying the Dracula Bride outfits from the 1931 film way back when I was creating my first Dracula’s Bride Gown, and realized that the originals were quite likely made in pastels to give that pale, but subtle depth.
I rather adore that the original wig is red w/streaks ~ make it a little more burgundy, and it would have been the way I dyed my own hair with silver streaks back in 12th grade.

In 1941, together with co-inventor George Antheil, she submitted her secret radio-guided torpedo system which allowed a torpedo to switch (or hop) between 88 different frequencies, making it virtually impossible for the enemy to track and detect the incoming torpedo.
The system was so advanced the US Navy said it was unworkable and poured scorn on the explanation that certain parts of it worked like the fundamental mechanism of a player piano. Technology did eventually catch up and in 1962 Hedy Lamarr’s system was finally put in place by the Navy.
