Summary: Barbarella was first a French comic strip, that was translated and brought to the US, and then one of the adventures was made into a movie. The plot is classic SciFi good vs evil, with the twist that the evil queen survives and the mad Earthling dies complete with his terrible ray gun!
Summary: Seen this movie in Hong Kong while on R&R from VIETNAM. Fell in love with Jane. Fell out as soon as she went to North Vietnam- have not seen one of her movies since. And, have never forgiven her!
Summary: Barbarella was so good. Great to see this finally released on Blu-ray. The picture and sound are as good as you can expect with a film of this age. The big disappointment is Paramount usual lack of extras - just a trailer. I'm still glad I got it though.
Conclusion: the story ? 'barbarella' is given instructions to seek out and return 'durand durand' ( lost in space for five year ) back to earth. along the way she has to submit to now outdated sexual advances ( which makes a change from 'pill' enduced climaxes ) but when finding him, will he want to return ?
