Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe (1940) DVD9
The film starts on Earth. A deadly plague has been ravaging the planet, known as the Purple Death because it leaves a purple spot on the forehead of its victims. Flash Gordon, Dale Arden and Dr Zarkov discover that this is being caused by a spaceship from Mongo spraying poison dust in the upper atmosphere. They immediately head to Mongo.
Flash's battle to save Earth and defeat Ming takes him all over the planet Mongo. He must journey to the impossibly cold, frozen land of Frigia to find Polarite, the only known substance that can stop the plague. He must infiltrate Ming's palace—several times, actually—to rescue various and sundry comrades who become captured from time to time, such as Zarkov and Dale. He must face such perils as an avalanche, a flood, many falls from great heights, and an electrified rug. He must also face dangerous enemies, from Ming's trusted lackeys Torch and Thong to the Rock People to the Annihilatons, walking mechanical men that explode like bombs. He cannot fail; the freedom of the people of Mongo and the survival of the people of Earth (not to mention the excitement of moviegoers) rest on his shoulders.
