Bombshell: The Hedy Lamar Story

DOCUMENTARY; NR; 90m. 

The world’s most beautiful woman was also the secret inventor of secure wifi, bluetooth and GPS communications, but her arresting looks stood in the way of her being given the credit she deserved… until now.

 

“Ms. Dean relates Lamarr’s ventures, those onscreen and off, with savvy and narrative snap, fluidly marshaling a mix of original interviews and archival material that includes film clips, home movies and other footage.” – Manohla Dargis, NEW YORK TIMES

 

“Recognition (and compensation) proved elusive in Lamarr’s lifetime, but in this marvelous documentary, a brilliant woman — “I’m a very simple, complicated person” — finally gets her due.” –Chuck Wilson, VILLAGE VOICE

 

“First-time director Dean does an excellent job of marshalling old source material, setting the scene for an account of Lamarr’s life on- and off-screen.” – John DeFore, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
