Did You Know?


Due to a lack of women in the stunt work business at the time, Lynda Carter's stunt double during the first season was a man. The studio was furious about Carter doing the helicopter scene herself, and got her a female stunt double after that. See more »


The helicopter used clearly shows a US "N" number on the belly and side of the helicopter. See more »


Diana Prince: It took me a while to get back but I guess I was... lucky.
Steve Trevor, Jr.: You were lucky for the both of us.

Anschluss 77
12 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Where there's Wonder Woman there has to be Nazis off course! Once again a very real concern in the 70s with the rise of the neo-Nazi movement and many Nazis still hiding out in South and Central America, the Irish Free State and elsewhere . This ep contains the famous scene where Lynda Carter dangles from the helicopter rather than her stunt double, even today it's an impressive and gutsy thing to watch. One hilarious aspect is that the one Nazi who has had his leg regrown is the only one to be rather conveniently wearing a rather effeminate pair of shorts. Also they decide that rather than to just shoot Diana Prince they'll tie her up (again!) and set off some dynamite in true Penelope Pitstop style. We have the very unusual sight of WW disguising herself as a nurse, something of a rarity, it's normally Diana Prince who assumes the disguises. Does she kill Hitler? Arguably yes. We also have the most graphic ever example of her strength, able to defeat a tank. WW's return is worldwide news with her featured on the cover of Time/Tempo. Once again Steve's dad is referred to in the past tense whilst Jo Atkinson refers to serving in the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner of the CIA. Anschluss is the term used to denote the unification of Nazi Germany with Austria in the 30s as featured in the Sound of Music. Interesting to compare this ep with some episodes of The New Avengers which also deal with Nazis, clones and suspended animation. It also marks the introduction of the unseen President (a southerner, like Jimmy Carter) briefing the team very much in the style of the contemporary Charlie's Angels. I always thought that if there's a new Wonder Woman series she should save the life of an unseen and unnamed US president who in the last scene is revealed to be Lynda Carter, the secretary from the 1940s now the most powerful person in the world. Steve actually proves himself pretty useful here which makes a nice change, acting more as a team with WW than just needing to be rescued. WW uses acupuncture skill much as Xena will later utilise. One scene I'd have liked to see would have been Diana meeting up with a US government scientist and recognising him as a Nazi war criminal she tangled with in the 40s, now resettled Dr Strangelove style in the US and his past covered up by the government keen to exploit his genius. 6/10
