The sci-fi space opera Barbarella is marked by the same originality, fantasy, humor, beauty, horror and eroticism that make comic books such a favorite. The setting is the planet Lythion in the year 40,000, when Barbarella (Jane Fonda) makes a forced landing while travelling through space. She acts like a female James Bond, vanquishing evil in the forms of robots and monsters. She also rewards, in an uninhibited manner, the handsome men who assist her in the adventure. Whether she is wrestling with Black Guards, the evil Queen (Anita Pallenberg), or the Angel Pygar (John Phillip Law), she just can't seem to avoid losing at least part of her skin-tight space suit! Also starring David Hemmings, Milo O'Shea, Marcel Marceau and Ugo Tognazzi. Directed by Fonda’s then-husband Roger Vadim (…And God Created Woman, Pretty Maids All in a Row).
