Flash Gordon: The Less Campy Script

So to end the month I'll add a neat little find. This is the first draft script by Lorenzo Semple Jr. for the 1980 Flash Gordon film. It is an interesting read and shows what the film could have been-with a less campy approach and more in tone to the Alex Raymond comic strips and the Buster Crabbe serial. Next month might see less postings as I attempt to return to actual novel writing but I'll keep it updated as best as I can.

Sorry for the late response. I found the same script available at so you should be able to get it there. Hope that helps!
