More than just the most beautiful woman in the world

Many know Hedy Lamarr as one of Hollywood's biggest stars of the 30's and 40's but few know of her career as an inventor. This fascinating documentary shows how Lamarr helped Howard Hughes design planes and how she came up with the principle of frequency-hopping. Initially a means to make American torpedoes more effective during WW2, frequency-hopping would go on to form the basis for modern WiFi and Bluetooth technology. BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY is the story of a woman who was known all around the world for her looks but whose real gift to humanity was her intellect.
