Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story gets a UK release date


Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr (Ziegfeld Girl, Samson and Delilah) was known as ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’ with Snow White and Catwoman both based on her iconic look. She was as famous for her performances as she was infamous for her multiple marriages and affairs with the likes of Spencer Tracy and JFK. But there was another, much more interesting, side to Hedy Lamarr.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story discovers the real woman, not only as an actress but giving her the credit she deserves as an ingenious inventor whose pioneering work helped revolutionise modern communication. It was only towards the end of her life that tech pioneers discovered her concept of frequency hopping, which is now used as the basis for secure WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth.

In 2016, director Alexandra Dean and producer Adam Haggiag unearthed four never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life. The film finally gives Hedy Lamarr the chance to tell her own story in her own words. The documentary is also narrated by Hedy’s family, closest friends and admirers including Diane Kruger, Mel Brooks and Robert Osborne. The film was produced by Academy Award® winning Susan Sarandon as well as Michael Kantor and Regina Scully.

BOMBSHELL: The Hedy Lamarr Story will open in cinemas nationwide on 9 March 2018.
