Flash Gordon (1980)

"Klytus, I'm bored. What play thing can you offer me today?"

Last year Pesco shared the classic football fight from Sam J. Jones' epic title role in the 1980 version of Flash Gordon. I've just re-watched the film and never cease to be thrilled.

Flash is one of the most iconic scifi characters of all time. An American football player thrown into a galaxy spanning adventure to save the Earth. This Mike Hodges directed version of the story has an incredible cast. Max von Sydow as Ming the Merciless, Timothy Dalton as Prince Barin and Brian Blessed playing Vultan the Hawkman are just a few of the fantastic performances.

Queen's soundtrack always gets my heart pumping and leaves me certain that Flash will save every one of us.
