Emperor Ming (Charles Middleton) returns with a vengence in this, the second offering by Universal in the Flash Gordon 'trilogy'. As usual, only Flash (Buster Crabbe) stands in Ming's way, aided admirably by Dale (the lovely Jean Rogers) and my favorite character, Dr. Zarkov (played by the unbeliveably wooden actor Frank Shannon).
This is one of my favorite films, the best of the three Flash Gordon serials, and well worth the purchase price. Argueably the best serial made. There are plenty of spark-sputtering rocket ships and "strato-sleds", air crews with wings sticking out of their helmets, Clay People, Forest People, Martians, magic amulets, a paralyzing ray, light bridges, and other accoutrements you would expect to find in a space epic such as this. Heck, even Prince Barin shows up! Universal 'borrowed' much of the incidental music from its "Bride of Frankenstein" score (composed by Franz Waxman); this adds much to the film's atmosphere, especially the Clay Kingdom scenes. If you enjoy serials and/or scifi fun, this ws made for you!
Trivia Note: Beatrice Roberts (Queen Azura) played Cary Grant's mother in Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest"
