BOMBSHELL: The Hedy Lamarr Story is a biopic about Hollywood star, Hedy Lamarr. Lamarr was known for her roles in Ziegfeld Girl (1941) and Samson and Delilah (1949), as well as her six marriages and alleged affairs with the likes of Spencer Tracy and John F. Kennedy. But there was another more interesting side to Hedy Lamarr. Her work as an inventor helped to revolutionise modern communication. Her concept of frequency hopping is now used as the basis for secure Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. BOMBSHELL features four never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking about her life, as well as interviews with her family, closest friends, and admirers. BOMBSHELL was written and directed by Alexandra Dean, and executive produced by Susan Sarandon.
LWLP organised a lunch for the event, attended by Susan Sarandon, Alexandra Dean, Laura Haynes (Chairwoman, United Nations), Terri White (Editor-in-chief, Empire), Lorraine Candy (Editor-in-chief, The Sunday Times), and Nishma Robb (Marketing Director, Google), among others. LWLP also co-produced the screening of the film. Photos from both events are below.
