Editorial Reviews

Before Lynda Carter took the heroine back to World War II for her “New, Original” incarnation, statuesque Tennis Pro turned performer Cathy Lee Crosby swung the magic lasso in a very different TV incarnation. As developed by scribe John D.F. Black (Star Trek, Shaft), and seemingly influenced by her recent turn as a mod, cat-suited crime-fighter in the pages of her DC Comics home, this Amazon Princess was more superspy than superhero. But fret not, four-color fans! Many of the expected wondrous elements from bracelets and lassos to Paradise Island and invisible jets, all make an appearance, albeit with a sleek, seventies espionage superaction refit. Ricardo Montalbon plays the laconic lothario who lurks at the top of a conspiracy to make off with ultra-secret code books, leading Agent Prince to discover an Amazon sister-in-exile (Anitra Ford).

I love this blast from the '70's.

WONDER WOMAN (1974) starring Cathy Lee Crosby comes to DVD at long last via the amazing (and essential) Warner Bros. Archive! This is a tough movie to pin down - the absolutely *beautiful* Cathy Lee Crosby is excellent as Wonder Woman, but the turgid script by John D.F. Black (STAR TREK - Season One writer/story editor) is difficult to sit thru - this movie is a scant 73 minutes...that runs for AT LEAST 3 hours :-). Wonder Woman's costume is a Hollywood fabrication and looks nothing like the Classic costume from the comic books (TV network logic unleashed...). The Diana-as-a-secret agent set-up was later utilized - far more effectively - as the premise for the last two seasons of the Lynda Carter WONDER WOMAN TV series. Trivia Note - Kaz Garras who plays Steve Trevor later guest-starred on the 1979 WONDER WOMAN episode "Going, Going, Gone". Guest stars Andrew Prine and Ricardo Montalban are A-plus all the way. There are also several excellent action/battle scenes in this movie (particularly Wonder Woman's duel with Ahnjayla, the renegade Amazon). The picture and sound quality is good overall - there is definite "grain" visible in several scenes, but nothing too distracting. If you own the Lynda Carter WONDER WOMAN TV series on DVD (a "must-own" TV series!), this TV movie makes for interesting - but perhaps not "essential" - viewing. I give this movie 3 (Wonder) Stars!!!

If I remember the Linda Carter TV version was a little more accurate to the comic book " Wonder Woman". Its odd the pilot episode contains hardly any of the super hero aspects of Wonder Woman, there's no lasso of truth or invisible jet, no bullet proof armlets or bracelets. Admittedly the invisible jet might have been hard for 70's TV budget. But the only thing that made "Wonder Woman" anything more than a female version of James Bond was her Amazonian lineage. If your picking this up for your comic book too movies collection you might want to pop for the season 1 Wonder Woman with Linda Carter. No disrespect for Cathy Lee Crosby, it is just that the Linda Carter wonder woman series is a better portrayal of Wonder Woman the super hero.

Lynda Carter cast such a magical spell upon the character of Wonder Woman during her 60-episode tenure as the Amazon Princess, it may come as a surprise to many that she wasn't the first actress to play the role. That honor went to tennis player-turned-actress Cathy Lee Crosby, who was cast as Wonder Woman in a pilot film made for ABC nearly two years prior to Carter's version. The pilot's writer, John D.F. Black, based this version of the character on a storyline in the Wonder Woman comic, where she lost all her powers and traveled the world as an independent adventurer who fought crime with little more than her courage and martial arts skills. Although this storyline had long since concluded by the time Black finished his script, it clearly had a substantial influence on him.

The pilot centers on Wonder Woman's efforts to retrieve a set of code-books which contain the names and cover identities of virtually every undercover agent working for the United States. A criminal mastermind named Abner Smith (charmingly played by the always-entertaining Ricardo Montalban) offers to sell the books back for a king's ransom; having little reason to think he can be trusted, Wonder Woman sets out to find him before the deadline is reached. The pilot establishes her as working for a secret government agency, ostensibly as a secretary to Steve Trevor (Kas Garas) but in fact an accomplished agent in her own right. It's never fully established whether she truly maintains a secret identity; one of Smith's agents referrs to her as "Wonder Woman" while she's in civilian attire, suggesting that "Wonder Woman" is nothing more than a code-name, much as "007" refers to James Bond.

Indeed, this version of Wonder Woman is far more suitable to low-key espionage stories than super-heroics.

People forget that the comic book landscape was very different in 1974. They also forget that Wonder Woman went through a phase where she was pretty much as she is portrayed here. (Not blond, of course.)

Cathy Lee Crosby does a fine job as Diana and as the more secret agent / less super-hero Wonder Woman. Ricardo Montalban is a lot of fun as the villain-with-ethics Abner Smith. (Yes, Ricardo Montalban as *Abner Smith*. I love it.)

There's some nice conflict for Diana with a former friend from Paradise Island that foreshadows the Artemis comic book storyline from twenty years later.

Overall, there are a lot worse (and less authentic) comic book adaptations out there. It was a good thing they didn't go in this direction. I love Lynda Carter's WW and I'm not sure this version could be sustained for three seasons. But as a stand-alone film? Not bad. Not bad at all.
