Summary:
Disc 1: A mysterious planet comes hurtling through space and threatens to destroy the Earth. Flash Gordon blasts off to the planet Mongo with Dr. Hans Zarkov and Dale Arden, where he battles Ming the Merciless, Hawkmen, Lionmen, sacred Gockos, orangaphoids, melting rays, sky cities, rocket fleets, atom furnaces, and tournaments of death in order to rescue our world from impending doom. Disc 2 & 3: To save the earth from destruction by a giant ray lamp, Flash Gordon and friends travel to Mars, where they battle and eventually overcome their mortal enemy, Ming the Merciless. This early science fiction film features flying Martians, spaceship battalions, clay people who ooze from cave walls, a light bridge, and other special effects. Disc 4: The earth is dying! A rocket over the planet is dropping a purple dust into the atmosphere, causing instant death! Flash Gordon and his companions head back to Mongo, the source of the plague. Upon landing, Flash discovers that none other than their arch enemy, Ming the Merciless, is the madman behind the carnage. He also learns of Polarite--the antidote which can only be found in Frigia. Flash and his companions head for Frigia pursued by Ming's soldiers.
