Winter Repeat: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017)


The Frock Flicks team is taking some extra time off at the end of 2020, and we’re repeating a few classic posts from the archives.


Set from the 1920s through the 1940s, this is the supposedly true story behind the creation of the Wonder Woman comic book, based on a three-way relationship between a professor, his wife, and another woman. The exploration of their life together is insightful and fun to watch. Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is currently available for streaming on Hulu and can be rented on Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, and more.

    I’ve read some of the early Wonder Woman comics, the bondage theme is very clear but apparently contemporaries didn’t notice. It was a more innocent time.

    Lovely clothes!

    People do see what they want to see; I don’t think the lasso of truth quite qualifies as bondage. I grew up during the war. All I saw around me were women doing the jobs. Mt grandmother ran a rooming house and my mother worked two jobs. Wonder Woman, the Black Canary and Sheena were the norms for me, and I very much think Gal Gadot fills the sandals nicely since she has a Mediterrranean look and her service in IDF makes her a believable warrior. Sorry to heat 1984 is such a bomb. But I did enjoy Wonder Women movie; what a fascinating backstory so tastefully done. It could have been absolutely smarmy. Now, about H. G. Wells…or Charles Dickens…

    I cannot wait for your review of Bridgerton! The costumes are delightful to look at!
