CRAP !!
The British band, "Duran Duran", took the inspiration for their name from a
character in the sci-fi film, “Barbarella”.
Jane Fonda starred in this 1968 film directed by Frenchman Roger Vadim (her
husband at the time). Her super sexy outfits were designed by Paco Rabanne.
The character played by Milo O'Shea was "Durand Durand". Rumor has it that
the band didn't really know how this was spelt, hence the omission of the
final 'D'!
