- 1. Against the backdrop of the beautiful Arizona countryside, Lynda unveils her
- network special, "Body and Soul." Singing the classic hit song, "I got a name"
- Lynda looks simply fantastic! While remembering her childhood, Lynda recalls
- her fascination with the music of the 1940's, and through the magic of
- television Lynda is able to take us there. Performing the timeless classic,
- "Chattanooga Choo Choo" it's clear that Lynda has the ability to
- transport herself, and us, to any era, just by wrapping her
- incredible voice around the music of the day.
- Even though many years have passed by since she played the role of Diana,
- on the highly popular "Wonder Woman" series, it hasn't diminished the amount
- of fan mail, that Lynda still receives. After reading a few of the letters, she
- comments on one of them, through the words of a beautiful ballad,
- Shifting her focus to another era in musical history, Lynda returns to
- the stage to perform several "blues" selections, "My mama done told
- While walking through one of the many "ghost towns" scattered through
- the Arizona countryside, Lynda slips into the salon at "Bittercreek."
- There inside, she teams up with Eddie Rabbit for the exceptional
- duet, "Just you and I." Which is simply wonderful!
- After presenting a few of her home movies, Lynda steps onto a soundstage of
- her own, which showcases her incredible talent as a singer and a dancer.
- Looking absolutely sensational, she performs a medley of hits.
- "Steppin' out with my baby" "Fascinating rhythm" and "Lullaby of Broadway."
- As the show draws to a close, Lynda performs two more selections: a stirring ballad
- titled "Three sides to every story" and then a rousing rendition of the hit
- song, "Gimme' some lovin' " which brings everyone to their feet.
- This is a wonderful special! 4/84
- 2. Looking beautiful and radiant, Lynda makes a special appearance
- on "The Tonight Show." Unfortunately, Johnny is away for the evening,
- and so Joan Rivers is filling in, as guest host. If it wasn't for her, sitting
- "behind the desk" this would be a perfect moment. As you know, Joan has
- never been known for her subtlety and the so the line of questions centers
- around Lynda's recent marriage and how relocating to Washington, has
- changed her life; and the fact that Lynda is rather 'full figured' and 'tall'
- which may have found men unable to measure up exactly. I couldn't help
- but reflect that Joan hasn't changed her act one bit in the last 15 years,
- she is still the same abrasive person she has always been. On a much
- brighter note, Lynda's appearance closes with a wonderful medley of
- "Come rain or come shine" and "That man of mine."
- Wonderful "full" screen closeups! 5/85
- 3. While making a very special appearance on the "Larry King" show,
- all aspects of Lynda's life and career come into focus, as she touches upon
- so many things. With an upcoming television movie in the wings, they start
- by discussing her role as "producer" on the project, and how she developed
- an interest in that area of the business. From there, Lynda mentions her role
- as spokesperson for Maybelline cosmetics, who is also supporting her with
- the release of her 'makeup' video, that she has just finished producing.
- Throughout the hour, they take phone calls from the listeners, who's focus
- seems to be centered around the role that she is best known for, "Wonder
- Woman." Briefly they discuss the possibility of a "reunion" movie. The
- conversation takes a serious turn, when Lynda is asked whether she would
- ever appear in nude pictorial. As she expresses her opinion on the subject,
- it's rather interesting, how this seems to be in direct conflict to the role
- that she played every week in "Wonder Woman." Because of the sexy
- image that she portrayed. With so many projects in the works, and with
- such a busy schedule, naturally the conversation turns to her recent
- marriage and how Lynda is able to maintain a certain balance in her life.
- It's a wonderful hour with the talented star! Fantastic Close-ups!
- 4. If the previous interview made it sound as if Lynda was taking
- charge of her life, and making certain changes, this next appearance,
- from "Hour Magazine" pointed out the reasons 'why.' Little did we know,
- but "behind the scenes" there was much more going on, than we ever
- would have guessed. During this very indepth interview, Lynda touches
- upon the end of her marriage to Ron, and the reasons why they decided
- to separate. She also talks about the mistakes that were being made, in
- managing her career, and how they ultimately placed her in the position
- where she was forced to make some "hard decisions." As the program
- draws to a close she mentions her recent marriage to Robert, and how
- they are working together for the benefit of both their careers. 12/86
- 5. While on location for their series "Partners in Crime" Loni and Lynda,
- sit down for a "staged" interview, set up by the producers of "Bloopers and
- Practical Jokes." The premise of the scene is designed to fool Lynda into
- believing that Loni has accomplished all of these "extraordinary"
- achievements, that have never been discussed before.
- Well, the look on Lynda's face says it all! 8/88
- 6. Stopping by the set of Joan Lunden's program, "Everyday" Lynda makes
- a delightful appearance. After being away for awhile, Lynda takes a moment
- to bring us up to date, not only on the birth of her son, but also her future
- plans, which might include a return to network television. 10/89
- 7. Making a very brief appearance on "Entertainment Tonight" Lynda
- attends a benefit race, for breast cancer awareness in Los Angeles.
- 8. While in Hollywood, attending the premiere of "Dick Tracy" Lynda steps
- in the spotlight, as she talks about Madonna, during this particular moment
- from "Entertainment Tonight." 5/90
- 9. Returning to the set of "Larry King Live" Lynda steps back into the spotlight,
- after being away for nearly four years. With several new projects to promote,
- it's the "comeback of Lynda Carter!" Or as she corrects Larry, "I would like to
- think of it as my return to television." Throughout the hour she touches upon
- many things, expressing a deeper level of concentration and insight, into her
- life and career, which explains her absence. She also sets the record straight
- about the situation involving her husband, and the financial institution that was
- in question. As the show continues, she answers phone calls from the viewers,
- which adds a certain depth to the show, beyond Larry's usual line of questions.
- Ending on a wonderful note, she mentions the support that she has received
- from her friends and fans, throughout the years. 11/91
- 10. With her television movie, "Daddy" set to air, "Entertainment Tonight"
- spotlighted Lynda's return, with this exceptional interview. Lynda looks simply
- radiant, as she talks about many things. 5/92
- 11. Looking absolutely beautiful, Lynda stops by the set of "Live with Regis
- and Kathie Lee" for a delightful interview. With Regis away, Howie Mandel
- takes over as guest host. Proving once again that he isn't quite connected,
- he tries to recall the last time that he met Lynda, and in doing so he jokes
- about her association with "lens crafting" which garners a round of
- applause! After correcting him, Lynda replies, "Why did I come on this
- show?" Interestingly, it takes Kathie Lee to rein the show back into
- focus, as Lynda discusses her latest project. 3/97
- 12. "Inside Edition" tracked Lynda and her family down, while on vacation,
- in the hopes of landing an inside scoop on the recent news, involving her
- dependency on alcohol. Realizing that any sort of statement or action would
- reflect back upon herself and her family, she just smiled for the camera. 7/98
- 13. Slipping into the murky depths of "tabloid style journalism" this recent moment
- from "Entertainment Tonight" starts off by stating that "nothing could stop the
- controversy surrounding Lynda Carter's personal life." After viewing all of these
- appearances, I wouldn't exactly say, that Lynda's life was filled with as much
- "controversy" as they would lend us to believe. But "sensationalism" is the name
- of the game these days, and honestly, during this moment from their "Whatever
- happened to . . . " series, Lynda LOOKS SENSATIONAL! It's wonderful seeing her
- smiling face, and listening to her, as she allows us the opportunity to step back
- into her life. Thank you Lynda! 3/2001
- 14. And finally, here are two of Lynda's appearances on
- the game show, "Win Lose or Draw." 2/89
- for taking the time to read through these rather lengthy descriptions!
- I know it seems rather "incredible" to believe!
- All these moments from the past.
- Moments that you might have missed recording.
- And those that you have only heard about!
Throughout the years, I've shared many of these clips from my collection
- with my friends, and they have always been astounded by all the appearances
- that I was able to record. To ensure the highest quality possible, I use a "dual deck"
- vcr when I'm sharing any of these moments from my collection.
- I look forward to hearing from you!
