    "Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe" Serial Film Three Sheet Poster, 1940. Three sheet 41" x 26", 27", and 28". This twelve episode serial film was the last of three Flash Gordon serials made from 1936 to 1940 by Universal Pictures. The poster pictures Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon with Dale Arden. Looming in the background is Ming the Merciless the despotic ruler of the planet Mongo, menacing the Earth with "The Purple Death." Posters from the Flash Gordon series are some of the toughest to find in the serial genre. This full-color poster has fabulous artwork. These posters are exceedingly rare and usually command a premium price. There are pin holes, edge tears along the bottom, fold wear with separations, and extensive tape repairs on verso, else near fine.
