Review - Bombshell - the Hedy Lamarr Story - the Dukes Cinema 31/3/18


This was a rare treat, with well-shot vintage footage and descriptions of this enterprising woman’s life. The film recounts her daring escape from a marriage that had brought her close to the leaders of the Nazi regime, as well as her risk-taking to hold out for a well-paid career in the film industry, and the impact her anti-jamming idea had on the communications industry we so rely on today. Even if the world seems to be getting carried away with mainstream feminism, for a glimpse through the window on a world of bold and creative women and the life-affirming quotes of Hedy Lamarr herself, this film is worth seeing.
