Film Screening: Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

  • Hallock Auditorium (map)

Join us as we screen the first film in The Ring Family Jewish Film Festival: Screening Jewish Women in the 20th Century.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story weaves together interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of actress Hedy Lamarr speaking on the record about her incredible life: her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre, her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 film Ecstasy, her glittering Hollywood life, her ground-breaking yet uncredited inventions, and finally, her reclusive, impoverished latter years.

Refreshments will be served after the screening.

The film festival is funded by the Ring Family Fund and sponsored by Oberlin Hillel.
