excellent biographical film
10 October 2017 | by (Tacoma Washington) – See all my reviews

I highly recommend this film. It's very well done, with lots of interesting film clips, interviews, and insight into Hedy Lamarr's life and times. A major theme is how beauty can make it difficult for people to see a woman's other skills and talents and abilities. She may be almost forgotten as a Hollywood beauty, and the value of her contribution to modern technology isn't too well known - which is a terrible shame.
