Barbarella is a Sci-Fi film from 1968 based on the comic series of the same name created by Jean-Claude Forest. Earthâ€™s President (Claude Daupin) is in trouble. The only man who can save his planet is Doctor Durand-Durand (Milo Oâ€™Shea) and the only woman who can find him is Barbarella (Jane Fonda). Throughout her journey, Barbarella is exposed to sexy new experiences involvingâ€¦mostly sex. Sheâ€™s constantly being seduced, seducing someone, Pygar (John Phillip Law), for example, or stripping in deep space. Roger Vadim, legendary French renaissance man, directed the film. At the time, he was married to Jane Fonda, his third wife. When Barbarella was released, it was a total bomb both financially and critically. Over the years, however, it has gained a huge cult following, becoming a mainstay of the midnight movie circuit. It even provided a name for pop luminaries Duran Duran. Currently, it has a 73% rating on rotten tomatoes.
