Overview
The strikingly beautiful Lamarr was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman, but spent much of her life trying to be taken seriously as more than just a Hollywood icon. A technological trailblazer, she also perfected a secure radio guidance system that is still used today. Never-before-heard audio tapes of Lamarr speaking about her incredible journey—from her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre to her glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions. 90 minutes, 1 DVD or Blu-ray disc. Color and B&W.

Critic's Pick. Very enjoyable…Ms. Dean relates Lamarr's ventures, those onscreen and off, with savvy and narrative snap, fluidly marshaling a mix of original interviews and archival material that includes film clips, home movies and other footage."—The New York Times

"A masterful portrait of a most complex character…Restores Lamarr's rightful place in the history not only of film, but of science as well."—The Economist

"Bombshell becomes not just a stupendous tribute to Lamarr, but also a tribute to every brilliant woman ignored."—The Nerdist

"Completely absorbing and well-researched…so filled with new revelations about Lamarr's extraordinary life and achievements."—Film Journal
