Where do they go when they're done with Hollywood? She came here - to Florida...

Did you know that Hedy Lamarr, one of the most popular actresses of her day, was also a brilliant inventor? She also lived her final years alone in Casselberry, thousands of miles away from Hollywood. 
Born Hedwig Eva Kiesler in Vienna, Austria, in 1914, she made her way to the U.S. in 1937 after catching the eye of Louis B. Mayer, of the famed MGM Studios. It was under Mayer’s orders that she change her name to fit Hollywood, becoming known as Hedy Lamarr.
She died Jan. 19, 2000, at the age of 85 in a nondescript, three-bedroom, two-bath home in Casselberry, Florida, where she lived alone, often being described as a recluse. 

There's a nice local news article that tells more about her 
career struggles, triumphs and life here.

Here's a nice, inexpensive idea for a simple gift.
And you don't need a reason to buy it for her..
