Maine Jewish Film Festival: Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

March 10, 2018, 7:30 PM

Known for her matchless beauty and electric screen persona, Hedy Lamarr also possessed an exceptional mind. An Austrian Jewish émigré who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic inventions by night, Lamarr developed and patented a secret communication system to help the Allies beat the Nazis. Rare recordings, interviews, and excerpts from Lamarr’s own diary expose how this secret genius with a scandalous past never received the respect she deserved — in film or in science.

Narrated by Susan Sarandon, voiced by Diane Kruger. (Unrated, 90 min.)

This screening is part of the Maine Jewish Film Festival.
