Flash Gordon: The Less Campy Script


So to end the month I'll add a neat little find. http://mysite.verizon.net/alancshaw/Flash/script.pdf 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 https://archive.org/details/pdfy-dAGrPNYi9GNmVP6S so you should be able to get it there. Hope that helps!
