Wonder Woman (TV Movie)
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-era espionage superaction refit.
Ricardo Montalban 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).
