    Description

    Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe (Universal, 1940). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). Chapter 12 -- "Doom of the Dictator."
    Considered by many to be the most elaborate and elegant of the three serials Universal Studios produced starring Buster Crabbe as space traveler Flash Gordon. Beginning with the release in 1936 of Flash Gordon, based on the comic strip created by Alex Raymond, Universal rose to the top of the serial market with this science fiction/adventure chapterplay. They followed up with Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars in 1938 and finally, this chapterplay, considered by many to be the best. Flash is now faced with ridding the world of a mysterious malady called the Purple Death which has inflicted Earth courtesy of Ming, the Merciless (Charles Middleton), evil ruler of the planet Mongo. In this historic offering, all 12 chapter sets, one in each lot, are offered to the highest bidder. What is most amazing about these sets is there immaculate, unused condition. Each set contains a stock title card, a chapter title card and six scene cards for the set. Also included is the original brown paper sleeve in which the cards were distributed in 1940! Do not miss this very rare opportunity to acquire one or a number of sets to this classic science fiction serial in near mint or better condition! Near Mint+.
