BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY is a documentary about the life of the Hollywood actress and inventor.

Sex

There are brief clips of a scene from a film in which a woman writhes around on a bed. Interviewees refer to this as a "hot sex scene" in which she "simulates orgasm", and remark that it was "analogous to a sex tape". Another interviewee jokes that he wanted to take Lamarr out to dinner and "feel her up under the table".

Nudity

There are some topless glamour stills and brief breast and buttock nudity in a clip from a film.

There is mild bad language ('sons of bitches', 'ass'). There are references to Lamarr's well-being having been compromised by a doctor who prescribed drugs such as methamphetamine before its distribution was made illegal. A sequence about the persecution of Jewish people under the Nazi regime includes graffiti depicting anti-Semitic caricatures.
