The evil Ming the Merciless (Max Von Sydow) is wreaking havoc on the planet Earth from his distant home of
Mongo. Dr. Hans Zarkov (Topol) wants to counter-attack, and gets some unsuspecting help in the form of
Flash Gordon (Sam J. Jones) and travel agent Dale Arden (Melody Anderson) when their plane
crashes near the strange scientist's laboratory.
When the trio takes off for Mongo, Ming sets about kidnapping them for his own terrible purposes. From that
moment on, it's a thrill-packed battle of wizardry and wits as Flash fights to save Dale from Ming's
clutches, and Earth from annihilation.
The stunning costumes are by two-time Academy Award® winner Danilo Donati,
and special Oscar® recipient Frank Van Der Veer. It's topped off by a
futuristic musical score performed by the best-selling British group Queen.
It's a flashing, dashing ride to the farthest reaches of outer space that's filled with suspense, laughter and
romance that's out of this world!
