Seeing that Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) might pose a threat for Nazi
spies in the USA, the Nazis, and especially Fausta Grabbles (Lynda Day
George), super-intelligent multiple Olympic medal winner, decide they have
to kidnap Wonder Woman, find out her secret and use them for the Nazi war
Fausta's first attempt to kidnap Wonder Woman though fails miserably,
but she learns one important thing: that Wonder Woman's lasso of truth
will force whoever is tied up in it to tell the truth ... a fact she uses
against Wonder Woman in her next attempt to trap her:
During a bond rallye, FAusta poses as Wonder Woman giving a display of
her strength, only to lure the real Wonder Woman out ... and fall through
a trap door, where Wonder Woman, before she can react, is tied up with her
own lasso and forced to give away her secrets, like that it is really her
belt that gives her her superhuman powers ... So the Nazis take off her
belt and ship her to Germany ...
Wonder Woman's closest friend Major Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner) learns
this, takes a leave from his army service and flies over to Germany to
save her ... but of course, Wonder Woman needs no saving: when she is to
be interrogated, Fausta her captor gets into a fight with Oberst
Kesselmann (Bo Brundin), who claims interrogations (read torture)
are his responsibility, and thus he gives a shit about any old lasso of
truth. And during their dispute, Wonder Woman somehow gets her belt back,
breaks her chains and takes out al the Nazis singlehandedly, making good
Back in America, Wonder Woman, now posing as buttoned-up secretary
Diana Prince, learns that Steve trevor is still in Germany though and has
since fallen prisoner to Fausta and Kesselmann, so she decides to go back
to Germany (in her invisible plane) to free him ...
Back in Germany, Fausta soon manages to capture Wonder Woman - and
Steve with her - in an electrified pit, but once again she gets into a
fight with Kesselmann. Ultimately, Wonder Woman convinces her that a woman
of her intelligence and physical strength should not throw in with the
Nazis who will never honour her accomplishments, and Fausta helps Wonder
Woman and Steve out of the pit, but throws Kesselmann and everyone else in
sight in. Finally, Fausta promises to Wonder Woman and Steve that she will
now go underground and help the Allied Forces with their war efforts from
within Germany ...
Something that is called Fausta, the Nazi Wonder Woman just
cannot be all bad, and this Wonder Woman episode isn't. It's
pretty much a comic strip come to life (not only in the literal sense),
offering a very simplified version of World War II, but campy and
(consciously) silly in the exactly right places. And Lynda Day George, not
the greatest actress in the world, makes a good Fausta in this one.
