Previous Flash Gordon films include: "Spaceship to the Unknown" (1936); "The Deadly Ray from Mars" (1938; aka "Flash Gordon: Mars Attacks the World"); and "Purple Death from Outer Space" (1940). All three of these features were edited versions of longer serials released by Universal the same year. The serials are, respectively, "Flash Gordon" (1936), "Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars" (1938), and "Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe" (1940). Former Olympic swimmer Buster Crabbe played Flash Gordon in all of these early incarnations. In 1974 a soft-core parody of the Gordon films was released, entitled "Flesh Gordon". And Filmation Studios produced an animated version, "Flash Gordon to Save the Earth", in 1990.
