I always thought that Pierce and Stephanie had great chemistry together and, as you described, both possessed a natural comic timing.

Last year, we discussed how one of the earliest influences on our pantyhose fetish was seeing pantyhose so many times on our elementary school teachers, mothers, aunts, neighbors, etc. Another major influence on our delicate psyche as we were growing up had to be the dawning of the superhero characters as depicted in comic books and, eventually, on our television and movie screens. Probably the all-time best female superhero who can still turn our heads today is Wonder Woman as deliciously portrayed by actress Lynda Carter in the popular TV series that ran from to Who can forget the image of her in that iconic red, white and blue skimpy costume, complete with the famous s-style all-nylon sheer-to-waist suntan pantyhose on those legs that seemingly went for miles? Like its predecessors — the Batman TV series of the 60s and Superman of the 50s — Wonder Woman was never going to win an Oscar for its scripts or acting and, certainly, not its special effects , but if someone came up with a hall of fame for TV superheroines, Lynda Carter would have to be at the top of the list for enshrinement.
The family soon moved to Los Angeles, where Stephanie grew up. She attended the Juilliard School before commencing her acting career. Zimbalist's paternal grandfather, Efrem Zimbalist , born in Rostov-on-Don , Russia, was a world-famous concert violinist, music teacher at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, and composer.
