Bold, Brainy, and Beautiful, Hedy Lamarr’s legacy is illuminated with gentle scrutiny and justifiable awe.

For many decades only a few Hollywood anoraks and technology buffs knew that Hedy Lamarr held the patent on an electronics communications system. Lamarr, who ended her days in poverty, never received a cent for research which paved the way for the likes of Bluetooth technology! As her films have faded from pubic memory, her scientific achievements are arguably now the best known thing about her. Alexandra Dean’s picture begins by showcasing her early life of whirlwind of activity, the ambitions of a glamorous star whose beauty was unparalleled in Hollywood’s glory days. But as her career blossomed, her fortunes faded (turned down Casablanca?). Following a string of stormy marriages and drugs, she battled a troubling reclusive period before agreeing to a landmark telephone interview for Forbes magazine, tapes of which provide the wonderfully rich material for this film.

Lamarr once famously said, “Any girl can be glamorous. All she has to do is stand still and look stupid.” She did neither, yet no one was more glamorous. Or, more sadly, overlooked.
