The Behind-the-Scenes Beauty of Barbarella

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.
