What does the most beautiful actress of the 1930s and 1940s have in common with the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and Bluetooth technology? They are both Hedy Lamarr (1914–2000), the glamorous Austrian movie star whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Catwoman. Less well-known are her accomplishments as a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during World War II. Filmmaker Alexandra Dean weaves a riveting story of a woman who was a feminist before the term was coined.
