Barbarella 1967 : Set in the
40th century, Barbarella follows the adventures of its title character played by Jane Fonda. In the film, Barbarella is tasked by the President of Earth with retrieving Doctor Durand Durand from the planet SoGo in order to save the earth. Beyond this premise, the plot is very loose, serving mostly as an excuse for Barbarella to end up in erotic situations. On her quest to find Durand Durand, Barbarella is seduced by a human resident of SoGo, who introduces her to penetrative intercourse (civilized people of Barbarella's society find sexual release through pharmaceuticals), seduces an
angel named Pygar, and overloads a torture device (called the Excessive Machine) which kills through sexual pleasure
The Ten Commandments is a
1956 motion picture that dramatized the story of Moses, an adopted Egyptian prince-turned deliverer of the Hebrew slaves. It was released by Paramount Pictures in VistaVision on October 5, 1956.
Planet of the Apes (1968) was a groundbreaking science fiction film based on Boulle's novel, and was directed by
Franklin J. Schaffner and starred
Charlton Heston. It was the vision of producer
Arthur P. Jacobs, who commissioned
Rod Serling to write the script, but the final version would be written by Michael Wilson. Jacobs enlisted Heston (who enlisted Schaffner) well before any production deal was made, and Heston's star status was instrumental in gaining support for the film. They gained the support of Mort Abrahams after producing a short film demo which showed that the makeups (initially created by Ben Nye, Sr., not to be confused with the design by
John Chambers for the actual film) could be convincing enough to not appear funny, as most "monkey suits" up to that time had. In the English-language films, the apes are insulted when called "monkeys," but in the original book, no distinction is made because "singes" is a French word for both "apes" and "monkeys".
