Kitty O'Neil: Wonder Woman stuntwoman dies at 72

 

Quote

Kitty O'Neil, a stuntwoman who was Lynda Carter's stunt double on 1970s TV series Wonder Woman, has died in South Dakota at the age of 72.

O'Neil, who lost her hearing when she was five months old, also doubled for Lindsay Wagner on The Bionic Woman.

Her other credits included Smokey and the Bandit II and The Blues Brothers.

O'Neil's success as a stuntwoman led her into the world of speed racing and she set a land-speed record for women in 1976 - which still stands today.

She got into the record books by travelling at an average of 512 mph in a rocket-powered vehicle called The Motivator.

George H W Bush that is.

I didn't take much interest in US politics back in his days, but from all the tributes coming in, he was a well respected and liked man.

Shame that we don't have leaders with his integrity these days.

The funeral has certainly helped to purge a few more dumpers from my friend list.
