Summary

Bombshell: The Hedy Lammar Story revolves around a recently re­covered interview with the ’40s film star. Throughout the documentary, Lammar’s struggle to be seen as an inventor—her work with composer George Antheil during World War II led to a communication system that is widely used today— is contrasted with her life as a Hollywood actress.
