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

“Does an amazing job of telling her story in her own words” – ELLE

“This doc on one truly bizarre and wild life should be a priority” – Metro

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