Why I Support the 1974 Wonder Woman movie
The 1974 version of Wonder Woman was not pretty. She was blonde, she didn't have a lasso, an invisible jet and that costume, Lord that costume.
But when you break down the story, it's not that bad. In fact, the film captured Diana's character to a T. Diana is supposed to be the best of the Amazons. How she handles any incident or situation should showcase her skills and intelligence. I thought the movie captured that well.
We saw this version of Diana as a confident and assured person, who was very quick on her feet and wise beyond her years. I wonder if she was portrayed by Lynda Carter or another raven-haired beauty would folks be so against the film.
For what it was, the film did a great job giving us Diana. It wasn't too campy and her role spot on. I appreciated their attempt to bring WW to the screen.
