Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

Tue 27 February 2018

Frequently voted the most beautiful woman in the world, Hedy Lamarr starred opposite Clark Gable, James Stewart and Spencer Tracy, but there’s so much more to Lamarr than her Hollywood glamour
years. Her greater claim to fame is as an inventor whose wartime ideas of ‘frequency hopping’ laid the groundwork for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and much of today’s communications technology. Based around
previously unheard tapes of a lengthy 1990 interview with Lamarr, Bombshell tells the extraordinary true story of a brilliant mind denied its full potential.

Also screening Mon 26 Feb, 6.15pm
