Wonder Woman (1974)

A year before Lynda Carter slipped on spangly undies and aided every heterosexual schoolboy's onset of puberty Cathy Lee Crosby was cast in a TV Movie pilot that didn't get picked up. It's not very good.
Cathy has a costume but no special powers other than being savvy... sometimes. She can fight, though… kind of. She appears to have taken half a dozen self-defence classes for women. I suspect they were running concurrently with the acting classes, but it was a case of attend one and miss the other. The script doesn't give her anything interesting to say anyhow. It’s hokey and the dialogue is terrible.The only stand out character is Ricardo Montalban’s gentlemanly villain.
