About the Film:  What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII. Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life—from her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre to her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 film ECSTASY to her glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions to her latter years when she became a recluse, impoverished and almost forgotten—BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.

PLEASE NOTE for all prizing: Ticket winners will be entitled to redeem TWO (2) tickets to see “Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” at the specific theater for which they entered the contest, valid for available show times during the time period specified above for that theater. Tickets are subject to availability. Tickets must be redeemed at least 15 minutes prior to the screening/show time.

    Why do I want to see this movie (in Washington, DC)? Because Hedy Lamarr had such a fascinating life!

    I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.

  2. Rochelle Zaks says:

    I just really love Hedy Lamarr. She’s absolutely amazing and inspirational. She really went through a lot both in Hollywood and and in her work in science. This movie about her finally brings her life story and accomplishment to the public. Some Old Hollywood enthusiasts know who she is but the general population is just learning about her. Bombshell is really the first film to bring Hedy Lamarr the attention and appreciation she deserves.

  3. Bob Stein says:

    Hedy Lamaar was not only beautiful but brilliant and determinedly strong. She had to be to escape her Nazi husband and steal out in the middle of the night helped by her maid., fleeing the tyranny she hated and lived under. It’s precisely because of her admirable qualities why I want to see this documentary about her. In fact, a feature film about her life would be just as good or even better!

  4. Kristen F says:

    I love historical films and this movie is getting great reviews! I’d like to see it in the Minneapolis location. Thanks!

  5. Catalina Roller says:

    Hedy Lamar was truly an under rated actress and inventor. What was not mentioned about her radio frequency invention, the US Navy didn’t accept the concept she created. Therefore; didn’t use it. It only came into play when her US patent expired in the Sixties! She deserved better in a man’s World with many egos.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi, if you are entering to win tix, please remember to tweet the message (if you have a twitter account; if you don’t please let me know), and also let us know what city you would want to see the movie in. Thanks!

  6. I would love to see Bombshell (in Berkeley) to learn more about Hedy Lamarr. Her scientific work is particularly fascinating, and this sounds like a great exploration of it and of her life overall.

  7. Joe Coffey says:

    Hedy Lamar was an underrated actress about whom most people remember as the actress in “Ecstasy”. However she was an excellent actress who was cast in many different roles opposite famous male actors. She had a unique voice and was one of the most intelligent players in Hollywood. Ms. Lamarr was ahead of her times and her own person. I’m an old movie buff and live in Boston. My favorite Hedy Lamarr films were “Tortilla Flat”with Spencer Tracey and “Sampson and Delilah”opposite Victor Mature. I’d like to see “Bombshell” in Boston.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi, I haven’t seen your tweet yet. Please remember to tweet, or let me know here if you don’t have a twitter account (or if your account is private). Thanks so much:)

  8. Christine Nelson-Rivers says:

    I’ve been looking forward to seeing this film since I first heard about it Finally the story of this smart, beautiful, multi-talented woman is being told. I hope there will be enough press to put this story in front of girls who need to see you can succeed on many levels. What a role model.

    Washington DC, please.
