Famous names: Jane Fonda

Crunchy goodness: 3


Sight you'll never unsee: Pretty much any outfit Barbarella wears (or strips out of) will be embossed on your retinas forever: contemplate, for example, the plastic-bubble bra in her silver bustier, or the furry tail trailing behind another bustier, or the blood-daubed, proto-punk rips in her stockings after she fights the angry dolls.

Stunt casting: Jane Fonda in her Hanoi Jane phase exuded hippie cred and brought that crucial sexual revolution zeitgeist to what could have been just another bad B-movie role.

Copycat: Band of seemingly alien 1980s pop stars Duran Duran is named after the supervillain in this flick.
