    Jane Fonda "Barbarella" space rifle from the 1968 Life Magazine cover feature on Barbarella. (Paramount, 1968) Capturing the zeitgeist of the 1960s like no other, director Roger Vadim's provocative Sci-Fi sex farce married the transformative politics of the Sexual Revolution with ultra Mod Space Age fashion. Its lead, Jane Fonda, was launched to superstardom, becoming the era's definitive radical chic sex symbol. This is the iconic space rifle featured on the cover of the March 29, 1968 issue of Life Magazine that announced Barbarella to the world. Featuring an undulating, stylized stock of dark brown wood with elongated trigger guard and hooked trigger. The large bore, blunderbuss-style barrel is secured to the stock with wrapped metal wire. Measuring 59.75 in. long. A protrusion at the bottom of the stock was broken off, and the remainder sanded down. Exhibiting some oxidation to barrel and nicks, scrapes and small cracks to stock. Otherwise, in vintage very good condition. Provenance: E. Rancati, Italy.
