Barbarella.




“Her top secret mission is a real wing-dinger”. Need I say more?

Honestly, all I can think of when I see Jane Fonda at this age is her iconic mug shot. Way to fight the power, Jane, one zero gravity strip tease at a time.

Seriously, though, Barbarella is a classic retrofuturistic sci-fi film that is worth a viewing, or a couple viewings, for that matter. More from wikipedia:

In an unspecified future, Barbarella (Jane Fonda) is assigned by the President of Earth (Claude Dauphin) to retrieve Doctor Durand Durand (Milo O’Shea) from the planet Tau Ceti in order to save the Earth. Durand Durand is the inventor of the Positronic Ray, a weapon. Earth is now a peaceful planet, and weapons are unheard of. Tau Ceti is an unknown region of space, so there is the potential for the weapon to fall into the wrong hands. Donning the first of many outfits (Barbarella is frequently tearing them and changing into something even more provocative each time), Barbarella sets out to find the missing scientist. She crashes on Tau Ceti, on an icy plain.
