Maine Jewish Film Festival: Bombshell, The Hedy Lamarr Story

Showtimes

Saturday, March 10 at 7:30

Overview

Known for her matchless beauty and electric screen persona, Hedy Lamarr also possessed an exceptional mind. An Austrian Jewish émigré who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic inventions by night, Lamarr developed and patented a secret communication system to help the Allies beat the Nazis. Rare recordings, interviews, and excerpts from Lamarr’s own diary expose how this secret genius with a scandalous past never received the respect she deserved—in film or in science. Narrated by Susan Sarandon, voiced by Diane Kruger. Unrated. 90 Min.
