This is a classic looking Barbarella t-shirt. Barbarella, also known as Barbarella, Queen of the Galaxy is a 1968 erotic sc-fi film, based on the French Barbarella comic book created by Jean-Claude Forest. The comic and film both feature Barbarella, a young woman who has numerous sexual adventures, while journeying around the galaxy, around 40,000 AD.
Barbarella is famous for a sequence in which the title character, played by Jane Fonda, performs a striptease in zero gravity during (and inadequately concealed by) the opening credits.
This is one of the few science fiction erotica films made and includes an erotic torture device. The whole film is played in a very tongue-in-cheek manner?especially when it comes to the frequent (but non-explicit) sex scenes. By today's standards the film's special effects appear cheaply-made and unconvincing, but the movie still became a big hit when it came out in 1968.
Interestingly, the film was simultaneously shot in French and English. In the French version, Fonda performs her own lines in French. De Laurentiis, the producer, returned to camp science fiction (but without the erotica) with 1980's Flash Gordon, with the Queen soundtrack.
