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 online first reproduced below…
Found only in German pop-culture magazine BRAVO and serialised in three parts over six pages – Gordon’s Alive! Is proud to present the official vintage Flash Gordon Photostory reproduced in its entirety for the first time since its original debut in print.
While the film somehow did not earn a full ‘Photonovel’ of its own unlike many Sci-Fi contemporaries of the 70’s and 80’s (including Close Encounters, Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek: The Motion Picture) this spread nonetheless is a great preview 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!
