Professor Marston & the Wonder Women (2017)

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.

“Been around the world twice, talked to everyone once. Seen two whales fuck, been to three world fairs. I even know a man in Thailand with a wooden cock. I’ve pushed more peter, more sweeter, and more completer than any other peter pusher around. I’m a hard-bodied, hairy-chested, rootin’, tootin’, shootin’, parachutin’, demolition double cap crimpin’ Frogman. There ain’t nothing I can’t do. No sky too high, no sea too rough, no muff too tough. Learned a lot of lessons in my life. Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet. Drove all kinds of trucks. Two by’s, four by’s, six by’s. Those big motherfuckers that bend and go TSH TSH when you step on the brakes. Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards. I’m a lover. I’m a fighter. I’m a UDT Navy Seal diver. I’ll wine, dine, intertwine, and then sneak out the back door when the refueling is done. If you’re feeling froggy, then you better jump, because this Frogman’s been there, done that, and is going back for more. Cheers boys.”
