One Bad Costume: Zed in Zardoz

Over the years, science fiction films have featured some of the oddest costuming. To kick off our celebration, we begin with one of the worst. Sean Connery, playing Zed in John Boorman’s Zardoz, sports a red diaper, tall boots, a ponytail, and a handlebar mustache. At this point, the jokes write themselves, don’t they? The costumes in the film were designed by the director’s wife, so perhaps no one was willing to tell him how silly they were.
