AMERICAN MASTERS: “BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY”
May 18, 2018  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

Hedy Lamarr was born in Austria, migrated to Hollywood, and played such iconic female figures as Delilah (in 1949’s Samson and Delilah) and Joan of Arc (in 1957’s The Story of Mankind). She also inspired the visual looks of other icons – specifically, Disney’s Snow White and the original comic-book incarnation of Catwoman. But the real bombshell about Bombshell, this jaw-dropping 2017 documentary, is how her ideas and inventions, in WWII, not only helped the war effort tremendously, but gave birth to such ahead-of-their-time technologies as GPS and Bluetooth. Check local listings. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

It is the documentary of 2018 to watch or find online later but tell your friends.She was so much more than a pretty face or an elderly shoplifter here in Florida once upon a time. And we should be grateful....
