Hedy Lamarr , a legend of Hollywood's Golden Age and siren of the silver screen who starred in movies such as "Algiers," "White Cargo" and "Samson and Delilah" in the late 1930s and '40s, is remembered today mostly for her exquisite feminine pulchritude. Think of her as the Farrah Fawcett (the red bathing suit pinup-poster version) of her day — a Viennese-born actress whose physical attributes earned her the sobriquet of "the most beautiful woman in the world.

Those probably were not visions of sugarplums dancing through the head of the man I spied dozing on a bench in Santa Monica's Palisades Park. I leaned over him and offered my heartiest Ho! Ho! Ho! He awoke with a start and instinctively started throwing haymakers. Fortunately, he missed. "Oh, it's Santa," the man said when he got a clear look at me. "Sorry. I didn't know who it was."
