Next to answer Kelly’s question : What has surprised you most about your journey? First, in researching and shooting the film? Second, on the Festival circuit?

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Regarding Fritz Mandl and his ties to fascism, it’s very hard to know what Hedy was aware of in 1935 when she married him. She was only 19 years old and she was interested in acting so I don’t think she was very aware of the precarious political situation this marriage would lead her into...

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Hi! Thanks for the question... Hedy says on the tapes we found that her favorite subject in school was Chemistry. So we know that she enjoyed science. She left school at fifteen, however, which was typical for women in her social stratum in Vienna at the time. She went to design school at 15 and spe...

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Yes, the frequency hopping graphic was hard to design in a way that was clear and easy to understand the first time seeing it... we just played with the concept and tried several different ways of drawing it in space and in two dimensions before we found a combination that worked... Lamarr and Anthe...

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Yes! She believed that the best way to invent was to look for the simplest way to solve a problem. She believed the best inventions were simple. She was naturally inventive and she played at taking gadgets apart and putting them back together again her whole childhood. When she was in Hollywood inve...

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Yes! Having the children involved changed everything. Hedy's son and daughter had very different views of their mother, however, and sometimes it took me a long time to navigate the truth around who she was between the two narratives. Luckily they'd both saved a huge and rich archive of her letters ...

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

I really wanted Hedy to lead the narrative, BECAUSE she was a hidden figure. I wanted her to reclaim her story and her space. I think it does take that kind of dogged determination to uncover these stories but there are so many talented filmmakers out there willing to do the digging and I hope many ...

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

I really wanted to tell this story in Hedy's voice and I didn't have any record of her speaking about the invention before I began making BOMBSHELL. It took me six months to find the tapes that form the backbone of "Bombshell: the Hedy Lamarr Story" ... I had to make a list of every person...

Re: The Q & A with Alexandra Dean on BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

Hi - technical issue resolved I can post! My answer to the question above is that I was doing a series about inventors for Bloomberg television for two years and it made me start to really investigate how we recognize the people who invent our world, how we celebrate them and what obstacles lie in t...
