Details the unconventional life of Dr. William Marston, the Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941. Marston was in a polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor in her own right, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academic. This relationship was key to the creation of Wonder Woman, as Elizabeth and Olive's feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Marston died of skin cancer in 1947, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their and Marston's children together. The film is said to focus on how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman's creation.

Just another soft core porno movie
14 October 2017 | by Johnny_WestSee all my reviews

Just another soft core porn movie. Threesomes, nudity, and horse-faced women make for the origin story of Wonder Woman. A professor and his wife start a threesome with a student, and they do drugs and have lots of sleazy sex while hashing out the origin story of Wonder Woman.

Kind of sad and sick to realize that there were middle aged college campus sexual predators even in the 1940s.
