Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

MA15+ | NFT Documentary

“A thoroughly engaging, eye-opening showbiz doc.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Truth is stranger than fiction in the extraordinary story of Hedy Lamarr, the Hollywood screen siren who invented 1940s wireless technology.

Known for her striking looks and electric onscreen persona, Lamarr’s legion of fans never knew she possessed such a beautiful mind. An Austrian Jewish émigré who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic inventions by night, Lamarr came up with a ‘secret communication system’ to help the Allies to beat the Nazis. Weaving in Lamarr’s own voice from archival recordings, this absorbing documentary reveals how Lamarr gave her patent to the Navy, received no credit for her contributions, and wound up impoverished in her latter years.

Executive produced by Susan Sarandon and narrated by Diane Kruger, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story is a film for lovers of history, Hollywood and science.

Premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
