Well, Kevin, you asked for it--to review the 1980 "Flash Gordon" movie would require that one of us actually sit through it. So I found an alternative. "Flash Gordon In A Nutshell," edited by Hedvig U., which almost makes this campy stinker bearable. Imagine what the other 104 minutes and 42 seconds were like...

I wonder whether King Features was pleased with what they got, after turning George Lucas down...?

Recently, I received a set of the old Buster Crabbe "Flash Gordon" serials as a present. I remember watching these on TV when I was younger, but most of the details had become hazy with time, so I was glad to get them. And they're every bit as cheesy as I remembered.
