Doc Soup – Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

February 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MST

$13 – $15
Hedy Lemarr was an actress, admired and ridiculed for her wildlife, who was secretly a genius that changed the world. 
The Hollywood star often referred to as “the most beautiful woman in the world” was infamous for her marriages and affairs, but few know the story of the brilliant mind who co-invented 1940’s wireless technology. 
Lemarr made her way to Hollywood and became a sex icon in 1940s Hollywood. She married six times and had affairs with everyone from Spencer Tracy to JFK. Beyond her scandalous public life, in the midst of the Second World War, Lemarr spent her nights inventing. 
BOMBSHELL rediscovers Hedy Lemarr, not only as an actress but as a secret inventor who was well known for her looks but received no credit for her scientific contributions.
BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY is the fourth film in our 2017-18 Doc Soup Series co-presented with Hot Docs.
