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.

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 »

all about campy and cheesy moments
13 January 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

I remember the time as a child watching Dukes Of Hazard, Space 1999 and the most closely to Wonder Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man, although The Bionic Woman is closest. Were as the Six Million Dollar Man is still believable and watchable it becomes really fast clear that this was a low budget series based on old comics and even filmed in comic style but with a lot of cheesy and campy moments.

But the pilot starts rather good with some real footage of WOII and especially on the part of the Nazis. It becomes clear that the Nazis want to destroy a hangar full of new techniques. But the US army picks up what is going to happen and sends out Steve Trevor to destroy the German bomber. But things go wrong in the first campy moments (Germans speaking English and explaining let's talk English so no German can understand our secret mission). and Steve crashlands on an uncharted island in the Bermuda triangle. An island full of women. But the queen wants to send Steve back to the US asap because otherwise the females could fall in love and could have sex. Guess who has to take Steve back, Wonder Women, in her (cheesy) invisible airplane.

The score makes it all watchable but it's more a big laughter due the fight scene's and the way the story goes but cult classic, don't get me wrong. No high tec here to see or special effects. Pure old school entertainment.
