Intimate and fantastic insight to the life behind Flash
6 March 2019 | by jamesjwatson_2000See all my reviews

This was a very intimate insight into who Sam J Jones is and who he became after the classic 'Flash Gordon' Film from 1980. Lots of wonderful interviews from the cast and crew of the film, Melody Anderson, Brian Blessed, Topology, Richard O'Brien, Peter Duncan, Brian May, Howard Blake plus famous fans including Robert Rodriguez, Mark Millar & Michael Roomer amongst many others. Well worth your time to watch this fantastic documentary.
