“Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” is a fascinating documentary film that, if it wasn’t based on a true story, would sound like fiction.
Lamarr, who was born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler in 1914 and died in 2000, was an Austrian-born United States film actress.
While the dark-haired Lamarr wasn’t a Bombshell in the Hollywood movie style of platinum blondes such as Marilyn Monroe, Lamarr was regarded as one of the most beautiful women to ever grace the silver screen.
