Featuring an all-star cast and a much-celebrated soundtrack by Queen, this is the original and best version of the sci-fi classic Flash Gordon, based on the comic books by Alex Raymond and Don Moore. Spawning Saturday morning serials, animated cartoons, a recent live action series on Sky, the story is once again going to be remade for the big screen in the near future.

Meanwhile, you can enjoy this gloriously camp version in lurid Technicolor. Flash (Sam J Jones) is a football hero skyjacked aboard Dr Zarkov's (Topol) spaceship along with the beautiful Dale Arden (Melody Anderson). The threesome is drawn into the influence of the planet Mongo where they encounter Ming the Merciless (Max Von Sydow) and together must foil his plot to destroy Earth.
