Based on the comic strip by Alex Raymond, Flash Gordon was directed by Mike Hodges (Get Carter) and starred Sam J. Jones, Melody Anderson, Ornella Muti, Max von Sydow, Topol, Timothy Dalton, Mariangela Melato and Brian Blessed. Despite grossing less than $30 million dollars, the box office flop has gone on to achieve cult status due to its campy tone, wild special effects and a bombastic score by the rock band Queen.
