Grace Hopper documentary (crowd funding)

I suffer from a little bit of hero worship for Grace Hopper (1906 - 1992).  She is often credited with writing the first compiler in 1952, and was an important contributor to the development of COBOL.

There is a crowd-funded effort to produce a documentary on her:

I would like to see this documentary succeed because I really would like to know more about her than appears in Wikipedia.

Update: Grace Hopper on Letterman:
She really was charming.
