Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story at North Oaks

Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 3:00 pm

Second showing: 11:00am

USA | 2017
Director: Alexandra Dean
English, 90 min.

What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII.

Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life, this documentary brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.

BJFF hits the town! Located at North Oaks, Senior Independent Living.
