Gal Gadot as Hedy Lamarr, for Showtime

Exotic and apt casting, I say.

As any Hedy fan knows, she died in relative isolation– media shy, anyway — and one of my first assignments at the Orlando newspaper was to write this fascinating woman’s obituary. Documentaries have come out since her death focusing on her inventive mind, patent fights, etc. A pre Code bombshell (nude in her breakthrough European film), a Hollywood mainstay for a brief period.

This should be interesting, although it being a Showtime limited series, we may see more skin than deep dives into her formidable brain.
