SuperSpy WONDER WOMAN Finally on DVD

D500Mark your calendars for December 11th, folks. The Warner Brothers Archive Collection is rolling out the 1974 Wonder Woman pilot starring Cathy Lee Crosby and Ricardo Montalban.

From the release:

Before Lynda Carter took the heroine back to World War 2 for her “New, Original” incarnation in 1975, statuesque tennis pro-turned-performer Cathy Lee Crosby swung the magic lasso in a very different TV incarnation of WONDER WOMAN. As developed by scribe John D.F. Black (Star Trek, Shaft), and seemingly influenced by her recent turn as a mod, cat-suited crime-fighter in the pages of her DC Comics home, this Amazon Princess was more superspy than superhero. Still, many of the expected wondrous elements from bracelets and lassos to Paradise
Island and invisible jets all make an appearance, albeit with a sleek, seventies espionage super-action refit. Three years before taking up residence on Fantasy Island, Ricardo Montalban plays laconic lothario Abner Smith, who lurks at the top of the conspiracy to make off with ultra-secret code books – leading Agent Prince to discover an Amazon sister-in-exile (Anitra Ford).

D500WB Archive will also release season 2 of Superboy that day as well. Featuring such notable guests as George Lazenby and Britt Ekland, Michael J. Pollard, Philip Michael Thomas, and Gilbert Gottfried.

This is the 1989-90 season starring the new Superboy, Gerard Christopher, and includes all 26 episodes on 3 discs. Produced by the Salkinds, who gave us the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve.
