Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story 2017

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

7.40 HDRip 2017 88 min
A profile of Hedy Lamarr is presented, it largely based from some found audio recordings of Lamarr herself, the information corroborated by other sources. She is most remembered for being a glamorous Hollywood movie star in the 1940s after emigrating to the US following a somewhat infamous movie career in her native Austria, but that Hollywood career which was never fully realized like many of her contemporaries due to circumstances, despite she possessing characteristics to the umpteenth degree revered with Hollywood actresses of the time. What is also presented is her turbulent personal life, which included six marriages, the general lack of romantic love in her relationships, addiction to cosmetic surgery late in her life, and the long estrangement with who was her oldest offspring, "adopted" Jimmy Loder. But arguably what may come as the biggest surprise about her to the documentary's viewers is her inherent scientific intellect, her biggest achievement in that regard being awarded a patent for an invention developed as part of the US war effort (WWII), but for which she never got the credit - financial or otherwise - the invention itself deserved, especially as it is the basis for the technology used in many of the electronic devices of today.
