So we were watching Blazing Saddles in HD this afternoon.  There is a scene near minute 20 where Mel Brooks and Harvey Korman make a joke about Kormans characters name (Hedley Lamar) being similar to actress Hedly Lamar. Now back in 1974 I understood this joke and knew of Hedy Larma’s acting career. But what I did not know, after reading wikipedia, was the Hedly and her then husband are considered to be the inventors to frequency shifting. A technology that is still employed today.
