BOMBSHELL THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

  • Release Year: 2017
  • Runtime: 90 minutes
  • Directed By: Alexandra Dean
  • Country: USA
Known for her unmatched beauty, Hedy Lamarr’s fans never knew she also possessed a beautiful mind.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story reveals how Lamarr gave her patent away to the Navy, receiving no credit for her engineering innovations, even as she was immortalized as a legend of the silver screen. Executive produced by Susan Sarandon. |Read More
