Synopsis
Calling Hedy Lamarr is a film about the legendary Hollywood diva and so-called "most beautiful woman of the world" Hedy Lamarr (alias: Hedwig Maria Kiessler). It is hardly known that the famous actress was also a visionary inventor. Hollywood didn´t provide opportunities for female smart minds and so her invention was kept a military secret. Her electronic technology enabled allied torpedoes in WWII to hardly ever be detected and is still used today. While her patent on frequency hopping is also the basis of all modern mobile communication, Hedy Lamarr never made a single penny with this mind-breaking technology.
