Flesh Gordon Meets the Cosmic Cheerleaders () | BFI
Like the original, it spoofs the Flash Gordon serials, though the humor is more scatological than the original. Only William Dennis Hunt returns from the original cast. Flesh Vince Murdocco is kidnapped by cheerleaders from a world known only as the Strange Planet, after the men on their planet are rendered impotent thanks to the villain known only as the Evil Presence William Dennis Hunt. The Evil Presence, who is in an unhappy relationship with Queen Frigid Maureen Webb , soon learns of Flesh's arrival on the planet, and wishes to transfer Flesh's penis to himself, in order to make up for his own poor endowment. It is often cited as being one of the worst movies of all time.
Flesh Gordon? Artwork reveals erotic version that was never made
Here are some well-known faces from Sundance over the years, as they brought their early movies to the festival. See the full gallery. Space-faring hero and galactically-renowned stud Flesh Gordon is kidnapped by a group of space cheerleaders hoping to use him to save their planet. A being simply known as Evil Presence has been rendering the men of their world impotent, and the women are desperate for some form of relief.
F lash Gordon fans worldwide can only imagine what might have been. Futuristic artwork — including lots of phallic imagery — that was created for an aborted feature film about the cult spaceman superhero and his intergalactic adventures is to be published for the first time. His Flash Gordon film would have starred Debbie Harry, lead singer of the American band Blondie, as Princess Aura, the seductive daughter of Ming the Merciless, the tyrannical dictator, who would have been played by Hollywood movie star Keith Carradine. But the production was abandoned before Roeg had cast his superhero after he fell out with its producer, Dino De Laurentiis, the movie mogul who made Barbarella , a science-fiction comic adaptation that turned Jane Fonda into a sex symbol. De Laurentiis had dreamed of three Flash Gordon films.
