Storyline

Earthmen are suddenly stricken with a mysterious disease, which causes instant death and leaves a purple spot on the forehead of each victim. Investigating, Dr. Zarkov discovers a spaceship from Ming's kingdom on Mongo spreading a dust across Earth's atmosphere, which Zarkov correctly deduces is causing the plague. Accompanied by Flash Gordon and Dale Arden, Zarkov drives off the ship and hurries to the friendly Mongo kingdom of Arboria, to enlist the aid of Prince Barin. At Barin's palace, they meet Queen Fria and Count Korro of the ice-kingdom Frigia. Helping them rescue a Frigian general from Ming's palace, they learn the nature of Ming's plague-dust and its antidote, found only in Frigia. With Fria's blessings they fly to Frigia to obtain the antidote, accompanied by Arboria captains Ronal, Roka and Turan. But Ming learns this, sends his own officers Torch and Thong to stop them with raygun fire and an army of humanoid robots... [Unedited compilation of the serials Ch's 1-5 and ...

Hey, It's Flash Gordon!
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have affection for this just because of a childhood experience watching these old serials. There was a fellow who used to show a fifteen minute episode as he sat at the control panel of his space ship. I loved those old rockets hanging on strings as they floated through space with their electric sparks shooting off to the side. The aliens with the angel wings.Ming the Merciless. Flash and Dale. Everything was so cheap and, yet, even as a child, I thought this was some artifact from simpler time. I was actually concerned for Flash and what Charles Middleton was going to do to him. Dr. Zarkoff seemed a bit of a putz, but he was also brilliant. Anyway, this is pretty bad, but I can't judge it too harshly. It wouldn't be right.
