Hollywood wild-child, Hedy Lamarr, was infamous for her marriages and affairs with everyone from Spencer Tracy to JFK. After inventing the movie sex scandal, she married a Nazi collaborator, escaped him, and fled to Hollywood. Songs were written about her beauty and Snow White and Cat Woman were modelled on her iconic look. This documentary will rediscover her, not only as an actress, but as a brilliant mind. It turns out “the most beautiful woman in the world” was also a secret inventor. In the midst of World War II, she used her free time to help create a radio-control technology for torpedoes, technology which would ultimately pave the way for secure cellphone communication, WiFi, Bluetooth, and drone warfare. This is the story of an actress, admired for her beauty and ridiculed for her wild life, who was secretly a genius who changed the world.
