Fonda/Law/Marceau ~ Barbarella
Jane Fonda's memorable, zero-gravity striptease during the opening credits of this 1968 Roger Vadim movie is the closest the film comes to a liberated marriage of wit and sex. Based on a French comic strip, the story concerns the adventures of a 41st-century woman, who pretty much gets it on with whomever asks. The sci-fi sets were pretty interesting at the time, though they look rather anachronistic now. Appreciated today mostly as a camp classic, the movie is actually more trying than anything else. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In the 41st-century astronaut Barbarella (Jane Fonda) receives a message from the President of Earth (Claude Dauphin) and is tasked with a mission to track down a threat to the earth, the scientist Duran Duran (Milo O'Shea,) inventor of the "positronic ray." On her quest she must go through many trials and tribulations. We get to experience them vicariously. Put your tongue back in.
Will she find Duran Duran before it is too late?
When Jane looks back on her extensive career this will be her crowning performance. She never really re-captured that Barbarella spark.
I think that Barbarella inspired the opening scene of "My Stepmother is an Alien."
The evil doctor appeared to be playing a musical tune on it and the machine started to do a wave motion over her body. She was squealing and smiling and looking nervous and happy at the same time.
The machine was doing something to her, but I wasn't sure what. All I remembered was that whatever it was doing, it was doing it to her naked body.
That scene and the vision of her naked in the machine was my obsession for the next three years as I searched every video store to find the movie. At that time you couldn't find it anywhere. It was out of print and no one seemed to know what I was asking for.
Well to make a long story short, here we are over 15 years later and I have a massive Barbarella collection. I am still obsessed with Barbarella and the scene where she is tortured inside the sex machine. It is still one of the most erotic things I've ever seen in any movie. Even hardcore porn, which really bores me, doesn't top it.
The idea that a woman can be forced to endure incredibly intense yet unbearable sexual pleasure as a form of torture fascinates me.
Even cartoons borrowed the Sex Machine scene. An Anime cartoon called F3: Frantic, Frustrated, and Female showed the girl being subjected to a tireless sex machine being operated through a musical keyboard by a mad scientist.
I am not alone here. There are websites devoted to Barbarella and the sex machine as well as numerous other Barbarella sites.Read more ›
