Synopsis:
What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930's and 40's and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for 'Snow White' and 'Catwoman' and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII.
Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life - from her beginnings as an Austrian-Jewish emigre to her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 film 'Ecstasy' to her glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions - 'Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story' brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.

Very Interesting - Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story review by IG

Spoiler Alert

Beyond the name, we knew very little of Hedy Lamarr, to say her life was far from dull would be an understatement, well worth a watch.
