The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day doesn’t MAKE love. The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day IS love!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

Oh 1968 Jane Fonda stripping in zero G… le sigh… If you haven’t seen Barbarella you lucky bastards (and bastettes) get to experience the weirdest adult sci-fi/fantasy piece of crazy-cake ever to be put on screen for the first time. It’s a great film, cartoony and weird as all hell with Jane Fonda being about the cutest thing ever put into boob-exposing space suits.

Unfortunately I don’t have any super revealing pictures for you today, but I do have one that shows just how adorable Fonda was in the role.

Hope you guys enjoy! Click to embiggen!



If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic is a very special one that brings us full circle.

    The Vietnam Era was a wild time.


    I was in Laos more than I was in my second wife those years.

  • She was infiltrating the enemy both at home and abroad. She was a hippie Howard Campbell. Probably the best damn agent we had those years.

  • July 6, 2011, 7:55 p.m. CST

    Which is why I was able to be in your wife, Choppah.

    by The_Dark_Shite

    She was cheaper than Laos & her jungle was friendlier. <p> Fire in the hole:-).

  • Look no further than 'Hanoi Jane.' She was so over-the-top in her support for the Viet Cong, it turned a couple generations against liberal Hollywood politics. There was no better counterintel agent in the history of the United States. The woman was an artist.

    That's true.

    by The_Dark_Shite

    I used to wake up to find her sitting in the corner, rocking & staring right at me all crazy-eyed, clutching a knife & mumbling "Me kill you. Why you take me away with your car & your bag of sweets & promise of our little secret?" <p> It's like she thought I was you! Crazy bitch.

    The young Jane Fonda is the perfect argument against marriage.

    Because one day, even the hottest chick will look like the old Jane Fonda. Or most likely worse.

    Always pay attention to the genes!

    by Alientoast

    Remember the rule of thumb: Take a look at a prospective wife's older female family's a sneak peak into the future in store for you! There are plenty of hot girls who's family genes cause them to age like Dorian Grey once they pass 30.

    The 1960's beauty who has aged the best...

    by zinc_chameleon

    is Yvette Mimieux, hands down. She looks truly regal now. Too bad she couldn't act worth a hoot. If there ever was a girl cuter than 17-year-old Weena/Yvette, they've escaped my expert attention.

  • July 6, 2011, 10 p.m. CST

    I always thought Sharon Tate aged the best.

    by Cheif Brody

    The great tits...All those revealing costumes...those long toned legs? And we get a half cut off shot of Jane's BACK and face? <p> Sorry. I was hoping for more, somehow. <p> What's the latest on R. R.'s attempt at remaking this sucker?

    Gloriously Insane and Jesus too!

    by Anthony Torchia

    Barbarella is gloriously batshit insane in the same way that Zardoz is not. She found Jesus I read, or rather Jesus found her. Anybody else think the Antichrist already controls Christianity?

    Jane was a serious gorgeous piece of ass, and I spilled a lot of ball badder watching her in Barbarella. Shit, she was one fine-looking cuntress.

    Hanoi Jane

    by The StarWolf

    It's ironic that one of the only countries on the planet where she wouldn't be shot for treason (look up the definition of the word) is the very one she spent all that time deriding. Would have served her right if the US had refused her entry back in the country.

  • July 7, 2011, 6:18 a.m. CST

    Not so much

    by The StarWolf

    You want 'hot'? Try Nancy 'I introduced the China Dress to the West' Kwan (THE WORLD OF SUZIE WONG among others) or Maggie Han. Either beat Fonda hands down.

  • Fucking awesome lady.

  • July 7, 2011, 8:21 a.m. CST

    Ms. Fonda...

    by JaguarWong

    ...was simply hotter than all fuckin' hell back in her 1960s heyday. HOT.

    Jane Fonda is a Traitor and should be in prison.

    by Christo

    If you want to know exactly what she did in Vietnam just read the book "P.O.W.: A Definitive History of the American Prisoner-Of-War Experience in Vietnam, 1964-1973" by John G. Hubbell. She actually ratted out a POW who risked his life to hand her a note (while she was visiting the camp) stating that he and his friends were being tortured. That's no urban legend, kids. She and her whole family can rot in fucking hell. So can Ambassador Sean Penn for that matter. Dick.

  • July 7, 2011, 10:19 a.m. CST

    Yvette Mimieux? Nope. Raquel Welch hands down.

    Hanoi Jane = myth

    by solvseus While she did decry the military action, and some of the troops who DID do certain not so great things, there were a few things she did that were not great herself. Some of which she's apologized for (like that photo where it looks like she's shooting down American planes, she has said repeatedly that she regrets that). Some of which she has not. But the incident reported, about her handing over papers the POWs gave her to the Vietcong are false. She met with 7 men, who asked to see her, and did in fact take some of their letters and things back home to give to families. She never betrayed any of them, and they've all defended her when asked. Seriously guys, this is easily debunked with like 2 seconds of Googling.

  • They hate because someone told them to hate.

  • Not that I have any first hand knowledge about that

    Ever Since her infamous visit to Hanoi, Jane Fonda has maintained the fiction that she was "just trying to stop the war." But she didn't go to North Vietnam to try to bring about piece, or to reconcile the two warring sides, or to stop American Boys from being killed - she went there as an active show of support for the North Vietnamese cause.

    Oh, and about the Braves?

    by Damned if I can login

    JF is a tiny, *TINY* footnote on one paragraph of the history of that baseball club. She had absolutely nothing to do with the team in any way whatsoever other than attending some of the games when they starting winning for the first time in decades. And, it's a safe bet that the players weren't overly thrilled to get any kind of press on account of her...bad, good, or otherwise.

    Solvseus and v'shael pt. 2

    by Christo

    Talk backs cut my post very short. Sorry. New here. I admit I believed and spread the Jane Fonda note-handing rumor. I am humbled. However, for her to say that she was just trying to stop the war is a lie. She called american soldiers war criminals and murderers. I am not naive to think that there were no bad seeds in the US forces over there. But plenty of good men died and she pissed all over their graves with her horrible behavior.

    If any movie should be remad/reimagined/rebooted? It's Barbarella!

    by Arcangel2020

    Nice behind the scenes pic for the day Quint! Not a real big..or even much of..a fan of the movie Barbarella. I remember as a kid just starting to get into the whole Sci-Fi/Fantasy thing back when I was around 9 or 10 years old and hearing from a lot of people back in the Mid-70ies how great the movie "Barbarella" with Jane Fonda was and how it was definitely NOT a movie for kids to see because it had a lot of "Sexy" themes to it (Back in the day? If a movie was Rated "R"? Good luck trying to see it as a kid or a young teenager! A lot of Theaters had a very strict policy about letting kids see R rated movies) Flash forward a number of years later, I was stationed in Germany while in the Air Force, had my very own VCR (VHS format please! and I actually had two! One to watch movies and one to copy them with! That was HIGH tech back in the mid-80ies! LOL!!)...I rented "Barbarella" and remember sitting through it and thinking...ok, when does it get better? And...geez the S/FX on this film SUCKS!....However I will say that Jane Fonda DID look pretty fucking sexy in the film. I am guessing that the...ummmm..."older" generation, those who grew up in the 60ies must have thought this film was awesome...for it's time? I do think that with all the unnecessary remakes or re-imagining of classic and ever non-classic flims that Hollywood do gleefully binging on these days? Someone should serious consider doing a much, much, MUCH more sexier, hotter version of "Barbarella" with a better storyline, way better special effects and an insanely hotter looking actress....maybe even doing a duology or trilogy of films? (It definitely would make for a great Sci-Fi/Fantasy Porn Video series for sure! :) )

    I was babysitting my sister one evening...

    by Gabba-UK

    When I was roughly 13. I'd seen this synopsis in the tv guide section describing the 60's sci-fi romp 'Barbarella'. I asked my mum before she went out if I would be allowed to watch it while my sister was asleep. I'd never heard of it and I was already a sci-fi nut. She looked me in eyes and said 'I think your old enough now to watch Barbarella now'. 'Is it scary?!' I asked. 'No,' she replied 'but it's gonna have a different kind of effect on you to what you might've had before with a film.' Bless you mum. I swear that I was light headed for a week afterward because my brain wasn't getting the amount of blood it was used to. It had been... diverted shall we say. Jane Fonda was hotter than the sun in the 60's.

    Legally, treason is still punishable by execution via firing squad. Both her and Sean Penn deserve it 100%

    Again, I was wrong about the note-passing

    by Christo

    But i was not worng about her being a liar and a treacherous snake with no moral compass whatsoever. I do not think she should be put in front of a firing squad or burned at the stake, etc., etc. I do believe she should have served time in prison. My father and uncle were both Captains in Vietnam. 22 year old kids in charge of a platoon of 18 or 19 year old kids. My uncle jumped on a grenade and saved 3 other people. My father triggered an enemy booby trap (made with US munitions) while disarming it. He could have ordered the young man who located the trap to disram it but he insisted on doing it. Both my uncle and my Father were both legally dead before being revived. I wouldn't be here today if they hadn't been injured. I'm as liberal as they come but FUCK Jane Fonda.

    I was so disappointed when I saw what the picture was. From the title, I was hoping it was Crispin Glover from The Doors.
