Movie: Retrospective on Flash the movie...Gordon's Alive!

We have been on hiatus for a time due to various reasons but health being the dominate one.  I hope to get back into writing this blog on a weekly basis.

Growing up, I was a big Flash Gordon fan ( over 30 years). I never forgot how much fun the movie was to watch and how I loved the musical score . It was my introduction to Queen, Sam Jones and Melody Anderson along with Max Von Sydow, Timothy Dalton, and Brian Blessed. Ryan Plummer    and the people at i09 put together a interesting article on this Cult Classic and a lot of things that went on behind the scenes.

The Weirdest Things You Never Knew About the Making Of Flash Gordon. This Article is interesting and explains a lot about the film and the way it looks today. You get the inside story of how screwy it was to work for Dino De Laurentiis and a international film crew.   Everyone has a different take on the film and I think if you have seen Ted with the Sam Jones scene you can not help but come to realize the " he saved everyone of us".
