“Starlet,” “Screen Siren,” “The Most Beautiful Woman in the World”—all phrases used to describe 1940’s Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr. Director Alexandra Dean’s illuminating documentary adds “Inventor” to the list. Known for her matchless beauty (Snow White was created in her image) and electric screen persona, Lamarr’s legion of fans never knew she possessed such a beautiful mind. An Austrian Jewish emigre who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic inventions by night, Lamarr devised a “secret communications system” to help the Allies beat the Nazis. These inventions include GPS communications, Bluetooth and secure Wi-Fi, yet she was never acknowledged nor received any of the credit. Until now.
Director, Alexandra Dean, will be attending for the Q&A!
Time: 86 min
