Warner Archive Releases Crosby Wonder Woman Pilot, Superboy Season 2
Warner Archive continues its trend of finding the most wonderful and amazing discoveries, movies and TV shows you didn’t know you wanted but once you hear about them sound terrific.
Before the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman TV show took off, they tried a 1974 pilot starring Cathy Lee Crosby. It’s more similar to the white-suit, superspy version of Diana Prince than the star-spangled warrior we’re more familiar with. As it’s described, “with a sleek, seventies espionage superaction refit… Ricardo Montalban plays a laconic lothario who lurks at the top of conspiracy to make off with ultra-secret code books leading Agent Prince to discover an Amazon sister-in-exile (Anitra Ford).” ComicBookMovie.com has posted a short interview with Crosby about the project.
Gerard Christopher took over as Superboy in this three-disc set of 26 episodes. Writers included known DC quantities Andy Helfer, Cary Bates, Denny O’Neil, and Mike Carlin, and villains included Lex Luthor, Metallo, Bizarro, Mr. Mxyzptlk, and Yellow Peri. (That last one is a pip!)
Warner Archive has even put out this short unboxing video that shows you what you get if you order these. Both are available starting today.
