CAST
BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY (2018)
Starring Hedy Lamarr, Mel Brooks, Diane Kruger, Peter Bogdanovich and Denise Loder-Deluca. Directed by Alexandra Dean.

What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII. Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life - from her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre to her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 lm Ecstasy to her glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions to her latter years when she became a recluse, impoverished and almost forgotten - 'Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story' brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.

As told to a reporter in a not-so-reliable recollection of events, the Brooklyn-born former escort reminisces about how a rendezvous with the director turned into a larger-than- expected sum of money and an offer she couldn't refuse. Like a cockeyed fairy tale, a chain of events affecting the lives of everyone involved, including Arnold’s wife Delta, leading man Seth Gilbert, playwright Joshua Fleet and even Isabella’s therapist Jane ensues.
