Barbarella

Paris: Pier Luigi, 1967. Vintage oversize borderless double weight reference photograph of director Roger Vadim, actor Honey Autumm, a crewmember, and an extra, from the set of the 1968 film. Shot by still photographer Emilio Lari, with his stamp on the verso, as well cropping annotations in holograph pencil and stamps reading "Noir & Blanc," "APIS-PARIS."

Based on the adult comic book by Jean-Claude Forest and published in the French magazine V in 1962 and 1964. Likely the campiest space-opera sex comedy in film history. Though not popular upon its release, it was re-released to greater acclaim in 1977, and has since influenced countless fashion designers, films, and musicians, including Duran Duran, whose name is a play on that of the main villain.

Set in outer space and shot in Rome.

9.5 x 11.75 inches. Light edgewear, else Near Fine.
