Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival
Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story is showing at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival on Thursday. Lamar's son Anthony Loder came on to Good Afternoon Arkansas Tuesday to talk about the film.
Known as “the Most Beautiful Woman in the World,” Hedy Lamarr’s dazzling looks have been immortalized in countless cinematic spectacles and glamorous photographs. Now Alexandra Dean’s elegant documentary pays a fitting tribute to her other beautiful features, most notably her brilliant mind. She invented the concept of frequency-hopping as a secret communications system to help the Allies track Nazi torpedoes, but her theories led to what we now use in wireless communications like Wifi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Now if only she could have invented a time machine so we could go back in time and properly thank her.
