About the Film:

Long admired in geeky circles for her inventions, screen bombshell and pinup Hedy Lamarr finally returns to the spotlight in this biographical documentary. Lamarr had a stranger-than-fiction life: she escaped from Nazi Austria and her arms tycoon husband, led a long career as a film actress called  "the world's most beautiful woman," and invented a frequency-hopping signal transmitter that was the precursor to bluetooth and WiFi. Retrace the little-known double life of a Hollywood legend and science pioneer.
