Today marks the birthday of one of my all-time favorite filmmakers, Sam Raimi, whose playfully dynamic style shines through no matter what project he works on. Let’s take a look back at his humble origins with Raimi’s trippy 1978 short film Clockwork.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the comic book debut of the Amazing Amazon, Wonder Woman, in a backup story in All Star Comics #8! Since this humble origin, the popularity of William Moulton Marston‘s super-heroine skyrocketed and encompassed numerous media depictions, most notably the 1975 live-action TV series starring former Miss World Lynda Carter. Similar to the rise of the heroine she portrayed, the role of Wonder Woman greatly elevated Carter’s career and allowed her to showcase her various talents. With that in mind, check out Carter’s duet with country music maven Kenny Rogers on the 1980 Lynda Carter Special.
Hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to share your favorite Wonder Woman memories in the comments!
