BORN TODAY: In Vienna, Austria – Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler (aka Hedy Lamarr), six times married actress who both lived and played the role (in Gustav Machaty’s film “Extase”) of a neglected young wife married to an older man. (Presumably?) the first woman to be filmed (in 1933) in the throes of full orgasm, allegedly faked by “by the film director’s off-screen manipulation of a safety pin strategically poking her bottom”.

Society and culture: The Kingdom of Bohemia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire (now part of the Czech Republic) gets its first airborne postal service with the arrival of a commercially operated Zeppelin.
