At the Movies: Bombshell

May 24, 2018

Paul Willistein of the Lehigh Valley Press reviews “Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story.”

If this documentary film wasn’t based on a true story, it would sound like fiction. Lamarr was regarded as one of Hollywood’s most beautiful leading ladies. Hollywood movies are only half of the Hedy Lamarr story. She is credited as an inventor, who, at the start of World War II, developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes to thwart detection by enemy Nazi warships. The concept is said to have become the basis for cell phone, Bluetooth, WiFi and communication satellite technology.
