Stanley Baker and Wonder Woman

This picture shows Welsh actor Stanley Baker with a couple of Miss World contestants in London back in 1972. They appear to be doing the hokey cokey. On the left is Miss Portugal and on the right is Miss USA, an unknown Lynda Carter. Lynda was eliminated at the semi-final stage of the competition. Soon afterwards she ditched the whole outdated beauty pageant thing and in 1976 transmogrified into kick-ass feminist pop-cultural TV icon, Wonder Woman.
