Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

Tue, 06/27/2017 - 12:28pm -- lwhite

newportFILM presents a screening of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story on the Redwood Lawn. Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr was known as the world's most beautiful woman – Snow White and Cat Woman were both based on her iconic look. However, her arresting looks and glamorous life stood in the way of her being given the credit she deserved as an ingenious inventor whose pioneering work helped revolutionize modern communication. Mislabeled as “just another pretty face,” Hedy’s true legacy is that of a technological trailblazer.  Combining this newly discovered interview with intimate reflections from her children, closest friends, family and admirers, including Mel Brooks and Robert Osborne, Bombshell finally gives Hedy Lamarr the chance to tell her own story.

6:40PM - Venue & food vendors open

7:25PM - Live music by Chris Monti
