I used to collect Wonder Woman comics when I was younger and remember the Junoesque (5' 10" (1.78 m)) Lynda Carter who played Wonder Woman on TV for three seasons from 1975 to 1979. As it turns out, she become the archetype for the role of Wonder Woman to the point where every subsequent attempt has been given up as a lost cause. The most recent attempt was in 2005 and like the character she played, Lynda Carter was such a dominant figure that all other challengers were mere shadows by comparison.

From official release/information:

Description:
On the mystical island of Themyscira, a proud and fierce warrior race of Amazons have raised a daughter of untold beauty, grace, and strength Princess Diana. When an Army fighter pilot, Steve Trevor, crash-lands on the island, the rebellious and headstrong Diana defies Amazonian law by accompanying Trevor back to civilization. Meanwhile, Ares (the god of War) has escaped his imprisonment at the hands of the Amazonians and has decided to exact his revenge - intending to start a world war that will not only last for centuries but will wipe out every living being on the planet, starting with the Amazons! It is up to Princess Diana to save her people and the world by using her gifts and becoming the ultimate Wonder Woman!

Run Time: 74 minutes
