Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr was known as the world’s most beautiful woman. However, her glamour and the dismissive attitudes of the time denied her due credit as an ingenious inventor, who invented a covert communication system to try and help defeat the Nazis. Giving her patent to the US Navy, she was roundly ignored, and it was only in her later years that tech pioneers re-discovered her concept - now used as the basis for secure WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. Alexandra Dean's documentary showcases this fascinating, infuriating story of a trailblazer.
