This week, we take two time-travel trips to see two different incarnations of Flash Gordon:
- The 1936 Flash Gordon movie serials.
- The ultra-rare 1979 animated TV movie Flash Gordon: The Greatest Adventure of All.
As always, I'll set the stage. By painting a word picture of the eras, you'll be able to imagine watching them for the first time as the original viewer.
