Films: B is for...

Barbarella

If you look closely about two-thirds of the way through this film, just around the bit where Anita Pallenberg (with the voice of Joan ‘Girls On Top’ Greenwood, of course) is showing Our Babs the Essence of Man bloke-bong room, we swear you can see the erstwhile Cat Ballou thinking “there must be more to my career than this – where did I put John Pilger’s phone number?” In the meantime, savour – yet again – friend of Creamguide (films) Milo ‘Me Mammy’ O’Shea’s fearsome Excessive Machine and even more fearsome excessive eyebrows, John Phillip Law’s wooden blind angel, and Swinging David Hemmings as, ahem, Dildano.

    Fond had a very odd career at this point — in Europe, she was mostly doing tat, but back home in America, she was doing great stuff in everything from BAREFOOT IN THE PARK to THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON’T THEY? It might have had something to do with the quality of the directors . . .
