The Question: What ’60s film starred Jane Fonda as a futuristic space hero?
Forty years before Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man” kick-started the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the sci-fi comic book film “Barbarella” wowed audiences with a completely different kind of hero. Based on a French comic of the same name and starring Jane Fonda in the title role, “Barbarella” channeled the sexual revolution in full swing by 1968, set it in the far future, and brought it to audiences around the world. It wasn’t the greatest sci-fi film of its era, but it’s still a fixture at midnight movie houses today.
The correct answer is Barbarella.
