A "wonder Woman"
21 April 2006 | by cary-37See all my reviews

What a pleasure to see such a beautiful hero. I am a serial buff and always look forward to seeing Linda, along with the blond version of Jean Rogers (Flash Gordon serials.)I was sorry to learn of her passing since I would loved to send her a fan letter after all these years of her movie making. I am not kid and generally would not think of sending out fan letters. As a writer, I believe her story would make an interesting book. In retrospect, we don't have many around who can play her with the attractiveness and agility of her part as the "Tiger woman". The only place I see that these days is on the TV series from New Zealand, Conan Doyle's The Lost World.I understand she got into the business without experience and from a career as a model. This is an action packed serial, with a body count as high as you can find in any serial. It has the traditional fight scenes with a multitude of break-away chairs and cliff hanger endings. Why don't the theaters play these "chapters" on Saturday Matinees any more? I think that is where all of the movie buffs discovered the magic of film.
