Hedy Lamarr in Ekstase (Ecstasy) (1933) a Czechoslovakian romantic drama that was notorious and scandalous at the time of its release due to the sexuality. It was censored for Hedy Lamarr’s nude bathing swim, naked forest romp through the trees, and love-making scene. It was also confiscated by the Treaty Department of the US when it was first imported, and was the first film to be blocked for censorship purposes.
In early 1933, at age 18, Hedy Lamarr starred in Gustav Machatý's film, Ecstasy, (Extase in German and Czech), which was filmed in Prague, Czechoslovakia. Lamarr’s role was that of a neglected young wife married to an indifferent older man. The film became notorious for Lamarr's face in the throes of orgasm filmed in close-up & brief nude scenes in which she is seen swimming and running through the woods.
