Repertory Screening

Like the early-1930s serial, director Mike Hodges’ FLASH is surprisingly faithful to Alex Raymond’s original comic strip, with just the right balance of action, tongue-in-cheek humor and mind-blowing production design (here courtesy of wizard Danilo Donati), with a score by none other than Queen!

Relative unknowns Sam Jones and Melody Anderson play Flash and Dale, but the supporting cast is full of heavyweights, including Max Von Sydow (as Ming), Topol (as Dr. Zarkov), Ornella Muti (as Aura), as well as Lina Wertmuller favorite Mariangela Melato (SWEPT AWAY) and future James Bond Timothy Dalton.
