Enjoying coffee and bickies this afternoon, with the 1980 film "Flash Gordon" on the UK "Film 4" channel.

What better way to spend a chilly afternoon than with complete and utter bollocks on the telly! (Lowden guitar practice during the adverts).

"Are you Ming the Merciless?"

"Indeed I am".

How can I resist...

Are the production values as high as for "Flesh Gordon" ?

Alas I've never seen "Flesh". Is it a naughty version? ;-)

Me and my mates saw "Flesh Gordon" at the local flea pit..

As long as we weren't wearing school jackets and ties,
we got in for most controversial "X" films...

I'm sure we didn't fool anyone we were over 18,
but the cinema staff turned a blind eye every week as long as we continued to buy tickets and sat quiet...

The only time we were turned away was when a new mate to our gang
stupidly attempted to disguise his real age
by drawing a fake moustache with dirt off the sole of his shoe
while we were queuing for tickets...

btw.. The British cinema version of Flesh Gordon was probably heavily censored...

I've read stories that the director's filthiest version never saw light of day after USA police intervention,
and court ordered destruction of film and negatives of the worst 'obscene' scenes ...

There's a Wikipedia article and other info on "Flesh."
