Wonder Woman




1942, with World War II still going strong: Ace pilot Steve trevor (Lyle Waggoner) shoots a ole Nazi bomber that was to attack New York out of the sky over the Bermuda Triangle ... but he crashlands himself, being washed ashore Paradise Island, an island solely populated by women (now that's what I call paradise), who all have superhuman abilities - like being immortal or being able to stop bullets with their bracelets ...

On Paradise Island, Trevor is nursed back to health, but the daughter (Lynda Carter) of the island's queen (Cloris Leachman) falls in love with the man and begs her mother to fly him back to the USA ... a wish that is granted to her only after a fierce contest.

So the girl - called Wonder Woman in the normal world because of her superhuman abilities - flies Trevor back to America in her invisible plane and carries him to a hospital, where his safe return is cheered on by his friends, colleagues and superiors - all but his girlfriend and secretary Marcia (Stella Stevens), who is secretly the head of a Nazi spyring, and is after the plans for a new american bomb sight stored away in Trevor's safe.

Wonder Woman meanwhile walks the streets of Washington, soon stops a gang of bankrobbers from making their escape and becomes a big sensation when seen stopping bullets with her bracelets. This catches the eye of theatrical agent Ashley Norman (Red Buttons), who soon makes her the sensation of his stage show.

Meanwhile back in Germany, Oberst Von Blasco (Kenneth Mars) decides to bly another bomber attack against New York himself, his goal actually being to destroy the the factory that's producing the new bomb sight. What he doesn't know though is that his own servant Nickolas (Henry Gibson) is actually an American spy, so the Americans learn about the attack way in advance. And when Steve Trevor, still recuperating from his crash over the Bermuda Triangle, learns about the attack, he cuts short his stay in hospital, with the aim of intercepting Von Blasco ... but as his secretary Marcia is about the handful of people he tells about this, he is soon made prisoner by the Axis Agents ...

Wonder Woman though finds Steve, her favourite human, gone from hospital and finds Marcia in his office trying to steal the plans for the bomb sight. The two women fight it out, and at long last, Wonder Woman ties Marcia up with her Lasso of Truth, which forces her to tell Wonder Woman everything she needs to know ... and thus, Wonder Woman becomes airborn in her invisible plane, docks onto Von Blasco's plane and makes it crash into a German submarine supposed to pick up the Axis spies with the plans for the bombsight. Then she goes after the Axis spies themselves - incidently her own theatrical agents being among them -, gives them a sound beating and frees Steve ...

All's well that ends well, and to watch over Steve more closely in the future, she - disguised as reserved office woman Diana Prince - becomes his new secretary.


Of course, on one hand, The New Original Woner Woman is your typical  made-for-television mid-1970's fantasy film: Under-budgeted, featuring lousy special effects, and the directorial style can be called functional at best ... but on the other hand, the film is also a comic book come to life: it's hokey, it's campy to the hilt, all the supporting characters look like caricatures right from a comic artists drawing board, the plot is enjoyably silly and utterly unbelievable - in a good way -, and the whole thing refuses to take itself too seriously. So if you look for a cinematic gem, don't even consider this one, but if you look for 75 minutes of fun and silliness, this is exactly your film.
