-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\ABOUT HEDY LAMARR-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-
Hedy's ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a secure radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes 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 glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions to her latter years when she became impoverished and almost forgotten—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.
