What do you think of 'Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe' (1940)
After suffering through Blackhawk and Batman and Robin, I didn't think I could stand another chapter serial. But I knew the Flash Gordon films were much better loved.
So I got this one on DVD. It's far more inventive and amusing than the other two. The low-low-budget special effects are great. There are mechanical monsters and rock people and a giant lizard to keep things interesting. And Charles Middleton is a splendid Ming the Merciless.
Do you agree? Disagree? What do you think of this chapter serial?
