Hedy Lamarr was a Hollywood movie star who was hailed as the most beautiful and glamorous in the world. However, that was only the surface that tragically obscured her astounding true talents. Foremost of them was her inventive genius that a world blinded by her beauty could not recognize as far back as her youth in Austria with her homemade gadgets. This film explores Lamarr's life which included escaping a loveless marriage on the eve of Nazi Germany's conquest of her nation to a new career in Hollywood. However, her intellectual contributions were denied their due even when she offered them in the service of her new home during World War II. Only after years of career and personal decline in her troubled life would Lamarr learn that her staggering aptitude created brilliant engineering concepts that revolutionized telecommunications, which forced the world to realize the hidden abilities of a woman it had so unfairly underestimated.Written by

During the segment on "Samson and Delilah," one of the interviewees says (in voice-over), "Samson and Delilah was the second-highest-grossing film of the decade. Only Gone with the Wind surpassed it." However, Gone with the Wind was a 1939 release, and therefore didn't share a decade with Samson and Delilah (it was a 1930s movie, while Samson and Delilah was a 1940s movie). See more »
Fascinating documentary on the gorgeous, brilliant, and complicated screen star Hedy Lamarr. Her beauty was known to all, even serving as the inspiration for the face of Disney's Snow White. Yet few, including myself , knew of her inventing genius, and how one of her patents (frequency hopping) would serve in later years as an important part of cell phone, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and military technology.
All in all, I thought this was an exceptional documentary filled with surprises.
