Details

Alongside her starring roles, Lamarr pioneered sophisticated technology used to prevent radio-controlled torpedoes from being tracked or thrown off course, which has also been adapted today to be used in GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Fleeing to America after escaping her Nazi sympathiser husband, Hedy Lamarr then conquered Hollywood. Executive produced by Susan Sarandon, this is the ultimate portrait of Hollywood wild-child, Hedy Lamarr. Known as 'the most beautiful woman in the world', she was infamous for her marriages and affairs with everyone from Spencer Tracy to JFK. This film rediscovers her, not only as an actress, but as the brilliant mind who coinvented 1940's wireless technology.
