I had heard good things about Alexandra Dean's documentary Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017). it was informative on several levels. I was not very knowledgeable about her legacy as a movie star and was also unaware of her career as an inventor. There were several other interesting aspects to her life such as her early career in Austria where she appeared nude in a film early in her career and her personal life where she married at least four times. In her later life she was addicted to plastic surgery not unlike Michael Jackson in his later years. However, it bears noting that the concepts she discovered revolutionized telecommunications. However, recognition took place long after her contributions were used by the US government.
