30? In fact Flash Gordon is 74. He was played by Buster Crabbe and for years entertained many kids on Saturday mornings at cinemas throughout the land as he flew his string hung sparkler powered wooden spaceship from one cliff hanging episode to the next.I have seen the real Flash. Sam Jones was just a Flash in the pan.
i watched this again recently and it is 100% pure gold, from start to finish. it's got to be one of the alltime greatest original sound tracks in this history of film (and let's face it, there isn't a whole lot else going for it). the absolutely pitch perfect personification of campy goodness.
