Full of eye-opening surprises, this film goes behind the public persona of a deeply misunderstood Hollywood starlet to reveal the thwarted ambitions of a brilliant technology trailblazer and inventor. Known for her glamour and sex appeal, Hedy Lamarr rose to fame in the 1930s and ‘40s. But her iconic career was largely tainted by both her own lurid offscreen exploits and screen roles that objectified her. What history had overlooked was Lamarr’s uncredited achievements in mechanics and technology. An Austrian Jewish émigré who left her Nazi sympathizer husband, she pursued a future in show business while patenting a secret communications system that’s the foundation of today’s wireless technology and perfecting a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes. Hedy Lamarr narrates her trailblazing story, weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of her speaking about her incredible life. This story brings to light an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.
