Wonder Woman That Might Have Been




Most WONDER WOMAN fans are at least aware of the horribly miscast WW TV movie starring Cathy Lee Crosby from the mid-seventies. Well aside from the costuming and the casting, it wasn't that bad but...judging from this clip in a contemporary TV/movie magazine (provided by ace researcher Derek Tague), a resulting series could have been something entirely different!

Interestingly enough, here in 2011 there are reports that the upcoming WONDER WOMAN TV series will feature her as head of a giant corporation. Wonder if they read the original script from way back then.

I saw this movie back in the seventies and again via an old bootleg tape and can say it's not that bad, as far as 70's TV movies go. One has to remember that at the time the comic book Wonder Woman had been de-powered and become an Emma Peel like super spy who used martial arts, much like this movie with Cathy Lee Crosby, so it wasn't that far off the mark.

I wonder if they were going to run with the zodiac theme and have this wonder woman eventually go against foes like Gemini. Would have been seventies cheesism at its finest.

I actually liked her better as WW than I did Linda Carter, although I guess it was personal taste. She was hot!
