    I just got back from the Chiller Convention in NJ. At the show was Melody Anderson and Sam Jones (Flash & Dale) from the movie. I asked Ms.Anderson if the movie was going to be re-released. And she said it was coming next year for the 25th anniversary. I wasn't able to get anymore info. But, at least we know it's coming.

    God, fantastic Halloween news. Maybe I can finally ditch the old Universal release sitting on the shelf. Nice new transfer, second disc of extras, commentary, maybe an MST3K treatment...

    Finally, a title that deserves a Universal re-release gets one.

    Everybody sing along:

    "FLASH! AAH-AAH! HE'LL SAVE EVERY ONE OF US!"

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    So bad it's good!

    Hell yes! (Though they should license it out to Anchor Bay or Blue Underground, then we'll get a nifty 2-disc set with perhaps the Mike Hodges R2 commentary and interview intact...)

    Is that what Freddie Murcury is saying? I always thought it was "HE'S THE SAVIOUR OF THE UNIVERSE!"

    I just cant see thisas a BU title, but nice to hear MCA will do something extra to it, like the recent DRACULA 1979 re-issue.

    FLASH! AAH-AAH! [​IMG]


    Great news indeed. I sold my old version quite a while ago.
    The going rate on ebay was so high I couldn't resist.

    Hopefully they will make it a 2-disc like others have mentioned. I guess we'll see.

    the HD transfer showtime has been showing recently is beautiful so the transfer for the dvd should be pretty good.

    The lyrics are:

    Flash - a-ah - saviour of the universe
    Flash - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    Flash - a-ah - he's a miracle
    Flash - a-ah - king of the impossible

    He's for everyone of us
    Stand for everyone of us
    He'll save with a mighty hand
    Every man every woman
    Every child - with a mighty flash

    Flash - a-ah
    Flash - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us

    Just a man
    With a man's courage
    He knows nothing but a man
    But he can never fail
    No one but the pure in heart
    May find the golden grail
    Oh oh - oh oh
    Flash

    "What do you mean, 'Flash Gordon Approching'?"

    One of my favorite lines in all of cinema.

    I've never had the pleasure of seeing the movie in widescreen, so as long as we get a clean print and a few fun extras, I'd be overjoyed.

    I like the followup line of Mariangela Melato: "Dispatch War Rocket Ajax to bring back his body"

    If anyone is interested to see how both Sam & Melody look now. I took a picture with both of them. I can scan it. I just need someone to host the picture. So I can show it here.
