Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
April 25, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Once known as “the most beautiful woman in the world,” Hedy Lamarr was a study in contradictions. Arriving from Vienna in the 1930’s she appeared in a series of films that ranged from her first, a pre-code film in which she famously appeared nude, to romantic thrillers with the likes of Charles Boyer. But behind the gray eyes and arresting face was a woman with as much brain as beauty. While under contract to MGM she patented a secret communications system used during WWII, and counseled Howard Hughes on airplane design, all while raising several children. Sadly, her brilliance was overshadowed by failure as her star status dimmed. USA, 2017, 90 minutes, documentary
