UKJF: Bombshell: Hedy Lemarr

Cinema

Directed by Alexandra Dean | 2017 | USA | 88mins | Certificate 12A

Meet Hedy Lamarr: glamorous Hollywood star and genius inventor.

Austrian-Jewish Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr was known for her beauty (both Snow White and Cat Woman were based on her iconic image), scandalous personal life and raunchy screen persona. But it was her biggest role as the inventor of frequency hopping during the war that slipped under the radar.

New documentary Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, produced by Susan Sarandon and narrated by Diane Kruger, pays tribute to the star with a brilliant mind, who gave us the basis for the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies that keep us connected today.

Nominated – Jerusalem Film Festival

Won – Audience Award San Francisco Jewish Film Festival
