Sci-Fi fans won't want to miss out on seeing this!

Consisting of 13 chapters, these serials are the first on-screen appearance for the comic-strip character created by Alex Raymond and began showing in movie theaters two years after Flash Gordon's adventures began appearing in newspapers across the country.

In 1996, Flash Gordon was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress to ensure these serials could be enjoyed for future generations.
