Hedy Lamarr was a definitive Holloywood glamourpuss. Frequently celebrated as the most beautiful woman alive during the 1940s , Heddy Lamarr became the inspirational model for both Disney’s Snow White and DC’s Catwoman. Featuring great archive footage and a never previously broadcast audio interview with Lamarr, Bombshell celebrates a fascinating life story, one tinged with controversy and tragedy. It also reveals how she invented a secret communication system to help the Allies to beat the Nazis in World War II. The consequences of passing her patent to the American Navy would haunt her in later life, though Alexandra Dean’s film belatedly acknowledges of her extraordinary achievements.
