DescriptionBarbarella (Paramount, 1968). Folded, Very Fine. Italian 2 - Fogli (39.25" X 55") Mario De Berardinis Artwork.
The surreal science fiction masterpiece from Roger Vadim gets even more psychedelic with this exceedingly scarce Italian poster, which Heritage is pleased to present for the first time. Vadim's third wife, Jane Fonda, stars as the title character Barbarella, who brings her swinging sexual adventures to outer space in the year 40,000. Her mission is to find the scientist Durand Durand (Milo O'Shea) who has been totally corrupted by the Matmos. Along the way she encounters characters such as the winged Pygar (John Phillip Law) and the Great Tyrant (Anita Pallenberg). Only one of a few copies known to exist, this vibrant large-format poster has light edge and fold wear, pinpoint crossfold separations, mild creases, and minute tears. There are a couple of thin dust shadows at the edges, minor mirrored surface indentations, writing bleedthrough in the upper credits, and faint printing transfer in the title. Folded, Very Fine.
Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
