Trivia

Though she wore hairpieces in the film, producers had Lynda Carter dye the very front of her hair bright fire-hydrant red. This caused for awkward moments when she was off the set as the rest of her hair was still a dark brown color. See more »

linda is not rita
23 July 2010 | by BardotsalvadorSee all my reviews

I saw this movie when premiere in television long ago , i been a fan of Rita Hayworht and when they said they will make a movie about her life i was very happy, Rita at the time of the movie was alive but very sick, the selection of Linda Carter was a big mistake she was of iris and Mexican decent La Hayworth was of iris and Spanish decent and both look very different Rita was sublime the most beautful women of her time.the movie was very bad. Carter has nothing to do with Hayworth she was well know as wonder woman but she don't have sex appel or look as beautiful as Rita.i will not recommend this movie is a waste of time and energy
