Barbarella

N.p. N.p., Circa 1968. Vintage borderless double weight reference photograph of Jane Fonda and Roger Vadim on the set of the 1968 film. Photographer Alfonso Avincola stamp on verso.

Based on the adult comic book by Jean-Claude Forest and published in the French magazine "V" in 1962 and 1964, about the adventures of space traveler and "queen of the galaxy" Barbarella (Jane Fonda). Likely the campiest space-opera sex comedy in history, a film which bombed upon its release but was rereleased to greater acclaim in 1977, and has since influenced countless fashion designers, films, and musicians.

Set in outer space and shot on location in Rome.

8 x 10.5 inches. Near Fine.
