TIS at the San Diego Jewish Film Festival
Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
Sunday, February 18th, 4:30 p.m.
We’re very happy to partner with the San Diego Jewish Film Festival for a documentary has it all: Hollywood glamour, history, hi-tech, and breathtaking beauty.
“Wi-Fi and Bluetooth — that’s my mother’s technology,” says Hedy Lamarr’s son. The film explores how one of the world’s most beautiful women was also one of its most brilliant. The Austrian-Jewish émigré actress was known more for her looks than her films, but she should have been known for her brains. During her Hollywood heyday, she was working on ideas and inventions originally intended to thwart Nazi communications. These ideas laid the foundation for technology developed by companies like San Diego’s Qualcomm.
