The “Google Doodle” currently posted at the top of the Google search page may be the greatest one ever, according to The Washington Post.

“Not only is it among the tech titan’s most stylish ever, as well as aptly cinematic, but today’s home-page Doodle, to mark the 101st birthday of the late Hedy Lamarr, will surely spark deeper interest in the screen legend’s amazing life,” The Post reports.

The Doodle taps into the surprising real life of the actress, who was discovered by Louis B. Mayer and became a star of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The report notes that Lamarr also became an inventor during World War II, “determined to invent something that would help defeat Hitler.”

The report adds: “Lamarr began to be truly recognized for her scientific accomplishments — as her work laid the foundation for spread-spectrum communication technology — in the ’90s, in the last years of her life. She died in 2000, in Florida, after long periods of seclusion. She was 85.”

Here’s the full Hedy Lamarr Google Doodle clip:
