"Flash Gordon" Original Thai Vertical Poster. Based upon the 1934 comic strip. "Flash!... He'll save every one of us!" When strange energy waves pull the moon out of orbit, threatening destruction of the Earth, Dr. Hans Sarkov makes a desperate rocket flight with two unwilling passengers: Flash Gordon (Sam J. Jones,) quarterback of the New York Jets and Dale Arden (Melody Anderson.) Their destination is the planet Mongo, source of the strange energy waves. Also starring the gorgeous Ornella Muti as Princess Aura and Timothy Dalton as Prince Barin. Featuring a repetitive soundtrack by Queen. Believe it or not, I got this poster plus the horizontal one below for a penny. That's the coolest thing I've ever bought for 1 cent. Anyway, here's the trailer. 1980.
