A very warm welcome to my brand-new site dedicated solely to the cult 1980 movie Flash Gordon. The mission is to explore and showcase a multitude of rare ephemera both vintage and modern to preserve the legacy of Mike Hodges Sci-Fi classic.
For a full introduction please go to the top right hand corner and click on the ‘Sitemaster’ link and also bookmark the site as it will be constantly updated with many unseen treasures starting with the exclusive gem reproduced below…
“Squadron Forty..! DYIIIIIIIIIIIIVE…!”
Found only in German pop-culture magazine BRAVO and serialised over a period of weeks – Gordon’s Alive! Is proud to present the official vintage Flash Gordon Photostory reproduced in its entirety for its online debut.
While the film somehow did not earn a full ‘Photonovel’ of its own unlike many Sci-Fi releases of the 70’s and 80’s (including Close Encounters, Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek: The Motion Picture) this 6-page, 3 parter gives you a great sample of what might have been (and in a grander format).
BRAVO would continue to publish features and posters throughout the film’s run and many will feature here in future posts, but for now, enjoy this bona-fide rarity!
