August 10, 1933 on the 19th-year Lamarr married the Viennese gunsmith Mandla Friedrich (Friedrich Mandl). The husband was older Headey 13 years and the man was very powerful; Of course, the story of the film `Ekstaz` his taste did not come strictly. Mandl Headey forced to forget about an acting career; however, it is thanks to him Lamarr found a new vocation. My husband often took her to meetings with technicians and business partners; Headey good early childhood knew the math, so prohodivshiena meetings negotiations it is relatively clear. Of course, to call special meetings of visiting such a spectacular entertainment has been difficult; however, have much choice Lamarr was not - the husband simply did not let her out of the castle.
How long continue so stressful marriage, of course, could not. In 1937 Lamarr changed into one of her maids and fled from the castle; it should be noted that on the whole story, we only know from the words of the most Headey. Anyway, getting to Paris (Paris), Headey has managed to get a divorce; Lamarr then moved to London.

After the comedy `My favorite shpion` (` My Favorite Spy`) actress career slowly went downhill; After 1950, she appeared on the screen only sporadically.
Acting operations glorified Headey, but now it has brought immortality, oddly enough, the scientific activity.
