Storyline

After a dogfight with a Nazi plane, U.S. Air Force Steve Trevor crashlands on an uncharted island in the Bermuda Triangle. Paradise Island is inhabited only by women, and their existence has been kept a secret for thousands of years. Learning of the Nazi threat to humanity, the Amazon princess, Diana, is chosen to accompany Trevor back to the United States to battle the Third Reich. Garbed in a skimpy red, white & blue costume and armed with a magic lasso that forces anyone within its grasp to tell the truth, Diana uses her powers as Wonder Woman to battle the forces of evil.

Trivia

The original Greek legend of the Amazons differs greatly from the concept in the movie and comic book. According to the original story, the Amazons were a tribe of fierce women warriors who lived along the Black Sea in Asia Minor, or modern day Turkey. What made them so noteworthy was that the women archers would cut off one of their breasts so as to not interfere with their use of the bow. The word Amazon in Greek means "without a breast".

Goofs

The initial close-up of the German XV-13 bomber's cockpit, and the shortly afterwards full-length sidelong view, do not match. At first, the so-called XV-13 appears to be a fairly rickety nondescript aircraft, but moments later is revealed to be a sleek Heinkel He III, a German medium bomber from the Second World War era.

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: [voice-over] In this dark summer of 1942, the onslaught of the Third Reich continues under the leadership of this indecent and corrupt man. His over-trained and blindly obedient army continues to ravish what is left of free Europe.

Alternate Versions

The original opening credits for the TV movie started the same as the currently packaged version, which is with several stock footage scenes from the War. However, when the opening theme begins, the footage continues for another moment, showing an actual explosion. This was replaced with cartoon stars exploding in 1976. The home videos and DVD releases only feature the syndicated cartoon stars version and not the original broadcast film of 1975. Furthermore, for the TV movie only, the opening credits show the cartoon Wonder Woman leap into a blank panel, deflect bullets and knock out the attackers with a roundhouse punch! This is the same panel which was changed to an awkwardly inserted panel showing her twirling the lasso instead. Both the live explosion and the cartoon bullet-deflecting scenes were broadcast when the TV movie aired in syndication in the 1980s, but they've never been included in the home-video versions. Certain minor segments of the movie were replaced with more campy tones than the original film. See more »

The Definitive Wonder Woman
12 November 1999 | by Plymouth-58See all my reviews

Considering that it's budget was miniscule compared to the Superman and Batman films, this TV movie is fun from the get-go. It is true to the spirit and tone of the 1940s comic, has a great supporting cast and, of course, Lynda Carter. Yes, it's campy at times, but it's in good fun. Cloris Leachman is not exactly Hippolyta, the warrior queen, but she has her fine moments too, especially when her masked daughter wins the tournament.
