Barbarella: Opening Titles

Opening titles of the movie Barbarella, with Jane Fonda, by Roger Vadim (1968).

The opening sequence, credited to Arcady and the great Maurice Binder, features an unrestrained intergalactic planetary aviatrix Jane Fonda peeling off her space suit in the kind of weightlessness that has the viewer seeing past the errant reflection. Text spills from the head, chaotically at first, then coalesces in credit, and finally plays the coy cover up.
