Ah, Barbarella. How many ideas sprung from its seminal influence (Dr. Durand Durand, anyone)? Roger Vadim's 1968 film based on the French comics was the flop that launched a thousand concepts. Now a cult favorite, it starred Vadim's one-time wife and American acting dynasty family member Jane Fonda as a sexy star traveler.
This iinked collection of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Barbarella catches Fonda, Vadim and the easy-on-the-eyes, mostly French cast at the height of their glamour and beauty. See photos of Vadim and Fonda together, with his son, her about to spacesuit malfunction out of being dressed, a video clip of the opening titles, and more here.
