More on Barbarella

Ask Katy

Hello boys. I recently had the chance to finally watch the very creative (but cheesy), sexy sci-fi film Barbarella. I didn't really know much about the film, other than it starred the very sexy Jane Fonda and a character called Duran Duran. I've been a great fan of the band since the wee age of 10 but never really heard why this name was chosen and who's idea was it first? I thought I would get some sense of why once I saw the evil villain himself (Duran Duran) but I'm still stumped. Was there anything particular about this film and the character? Stumped in Ottawa?.
