I was wondering if anyone knows about the Flash Gordon serials starring Buster Crabbe from the late 1930's to early 1940's? I believe that there were three serials made, but I'm not sure. The original in 1936, Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars in 1938, and Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe in 1940.


I have heard that the last serial (Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe) had the best plot, but that is just one person's opinion. Should I start with the first serial and work my way through, or could I start with the last serial without missing anything that may have been explained in a previous serial?


Thanks for any help.

Yes, you are correct about the three FLASH GORDON serials you list.


It probably would be best to watch them in their original production order. The first serial, for instance, tells how Flash met Dale Arden and Dr. Zarkov, and it recounts his first battle with the evil Emperor Ming, who reappears in the others.


My opinion is that the first is the best, but they're all pretty good.


Happy viewing!
