Inspiring documentary - a bittersweet celebration of Hedy Lemarr's journey from glamorous Hollywood legend to technology genius

Austrian actress Hedy Lamarr fled an oppressive marriage to create a name for herself as one of Hollywood's top leading ladies in the 1940s. She became a screen siren who was called "the most beautiful woman in the world" and starred alongside Hollywood giants like Spencer Tracy, Jimmy Stewart and Clark Gable.
Behind the glamour and sex appeal, though, was a talented and inquisitive inventor who devised a wireless form of communication called "frequency hopping" that revolutionised mobile communications all over the world - a feat that would directly lead to the creation of secure communications for wireless phones, Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi technology itself.
"A life story packed with incident means that...Lamarr's life story is never, ever dull" Empire
"It may be the best 'not just a pretty face' story in the history of the world" Financial Times
"Ms. Dean relates Lamarr's ventures, those onscreen and off, with savvy and narrative snap, fluidly marshaling a mix of original interviews and archival material that includes film clips, home movies and other footage" New York Times
