Photograph[edit]

The woman in the middle of the photograph with the caption "Jane Heap and Margaret Anderson with Ezra Pound" is, to the best of my knowledge, Mina Loy, not Margaret Anderson. This can be verified by checking Carolyn Burke's biography of Mina Loy, which I don't have on hand. As the picture doesn't feature Antheil, and Pound, Heap, or Loy aren't even mentioned in the article, I'm deleting it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.189.36.225 (talk) 20:55, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

month of birth[edit]

I have another source that says Antheil was born in July (the rest of the date is the same). Is this correct? Classicalkid87 15:01, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Polish[edit]

I don't want to alter the main page without first checking, seeing as the writer seems so sure about their correctness, but Antheil's autobiography makes mention of his family in Poland, whom he visits. Anyone have any better knowledge than I do? Tomkeene (talk) 16:12, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the question. I am Antheil's grandnephew and I can tell you definitively that George was not Polish.

What type of citation would be valid to prove that George Antheil was not Polish? - A. Antheil McTighe —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.214.151.120 (talk) 23:30, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Isn't it true that Antheil and actress Hedy Lamarr patented frequency-hopping radio in 1942, the technology that makes cell phones possible? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 155.181.152.1 (talk) 15:05, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

List of Works[edit]

The list of works for Antheil changes everytime I see it; would it be possible to put up a complete list and link it off? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ulyssesm90 (talkcontribs) 01:23, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Igor?[edit]

Do Antheil's brief encounters with Stravinsky really warrant a prominent Stravinsky picture in this article? I would vote no. Ribbonabaca (talk) 20:15, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Considering this whole frequency vaulting patent must be a reference to Samuel II 5:6, some Hollywood producers tried to play some practical joke on the yellow press, there may likewise be some further pun intended. Hmm. The last clip in Fantasia 2000, music Prince Katchei, images Rite of Spring? - 78.34.209.39
I also vote no. (I've no idea what the anonymous editor is saying.) - kosboot (talk) 12:11, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Influence for frequency-hopping from Friedrich Mandl doubtful[edit]

Under the heading "Frequency-hopping spread-spectrum invention", the first sentence of the third paragraph claims "Using knowledge of torpedoes gained from her first husband – munitions manufacturer Friedrich Mandl – Antheil and Lamarr developed the idea of using frequency hopping..." No source is provided for this claim, and Lamarr herself explicitly said that her husband (Mandl) excluded her from his factories, and did not "talk shop" with her. Furthermore, Friedrich Mandl's main factory -- Otto Eberhardt Patronenfabrik -- did not produce torpedoes; it manufactured ammunition and small arms (the word "Patronenfabrik" literally means "cartridge factory"), and his other factory produced small civil aircraft. No torpedoes. Bricology (talk) 02:15, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
