Pistol Wimp has unearthed a copy of the 5-minute 1967 test-pilot for a Wonder Woman series. It appears to as campy as the producers’ other creation, Batman. It stars Ellie Wood Walker as Diana Prince, Linda Harrison as Wonder Woman and Maudie Prickett as her mother.
Is it me, or is Wonder Woman admiring herself a little too much in the mirror. I mean, sure, it was risqué back then to wear star-pattern blue knickers out in the open…but methinks Wonder Woman is a bit too narcissistic to be an effective heroine. Now that I think about it, she’s acting like she’s on heroin. That’s the only explanation I have for her gravity-defying no-way-she’s-hooked-up-to-wires leap into the nighttime sky.
Thanks you, O wise gods of 1960’s television programming, for waiting until Lynda Carter.
