Flash Gordon's 75th Anniversary


Yep the sputtering rockets are getting older as this year marks the 75th anniversary of the "First Great Serial Spectacle!" as the original poster above claims.

(A note-this video looks pulled from the re-release of the serial when it was retitled Space Soldiers):
