Universal Pictures “Flash Gordon”/Splash
Sam, a former marine was catapulted to pop cult superstar when he starred in the glitzy feature version of Dino De Laurentiis’ production of FLASH GORDON based on the classic comic strip created by Alex Raymond. And Jones is such an iconic character as Flash he even made appearance in Seth McFarlane’s flick “Ted” in full Mongo- bashing regalia.
While the film seemed to have everything going for it on paper, a great cast including Timothy Dalton, Brian Blessed, Max Von Sydow, Topol, and Ornella Muti, ornate production design and music by Queen, the film failed to catch fire at the box office.
