Jill Lepore Will Introduce!

(1974) dir Vincent McEveety w/Cathy Lee Crosby, Kaz Garas, Andrew Prine, Ricardo Montalbán [73 min; 35mm]
This failed pilot for the WONDER WOMAN TV series captures a bit of the spirit of the classic DC comic book character – if not entirely accurately. As evidenced by the successful re-casting of Lynda Carter in the role one year later, America just didn’t like seeing a blonde Wonder Woman, let alone one who didn’t seem to have any superpowers. Regardless, the resulting film is prime ‘70s kitsch and a fun watch on the big screen.

At 6:00 PM, Harvard Book Store presents Jill Lepore, who will discuss her new book, The Secret History of Wonder Woman.

Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper ‘41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at The New Yorker. Her books include Book of Ages, a finalist for the National Book Award; New York Burning, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; The Name of War, winner of the Bancroft Prize; and The Mansion of Happiness, which was short-listed for the 2013 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
