This film has no words, but it is easy to understand what is happening. It was banned in the U.S. for many years because of content that was too erotic for that time. It did bring Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler to the attention of Louis B. Mayer, who brought her to the U.S. and started her U.S. acting career under the name 'Hedy Lamarr' in the movie 'Algiers' in 1938. Ms. Lamarr was not only the most beautiful woman that Louis B. Mayer said he had ever seen, she was an bona fide scientific scholar, and received a patent in 1942 for 'spread spectrum' radio signal transmission.
