In this episode, film & culture writer Adrianna Gober joins show stalwart Elbee and me once more to discuss 1968’s psychedelic sci-fantasy, Barbarella. This film is chock full of fantastic sets, groovy costumes, strange creatures, and a whole lot of naked folks! But it’s OK! It’s rated PG!
The film stars Jane Fonda, John Phillip Law, Anita Pallenberg, French mime Marcel Marceau, and Milo O’Shea as the mad scientist Duran Duran (yes, the inspiration for the namesake of the pop group from the 1980s).
Here we do the typical for the show, mulling over the plot and the strangeness, but also discuss certain cultural concepts having to do with the late 1960s sexual revolution. So if you please, brush up on the material in whatever way you can, and then join us as we discuss Barbarella: Queen of the Galaxy.
