Flash even develops what appears to be an echoing affection for Azura, in spite of her rather ghastly treatment of him and his friends, though he tells her that Ghor-dhan's love for her is dust.
If Flash is the reincarnation of Ghor-dhan, it would be ironic, because the kingdom of Syk that is the remnant of Ghor-dhan's realm is perhaps the most cold and cruel on Mongo, Azura, his long-lost love, is callously cruel and arguably insane, and Ming seems to be an expatriat of that same realm.

Flash Gordon is based on the classic (and infinitely more reputable) comic strip and its 30s screen serialisation, this cotton-candy-coloured trash classic deserves immortality for Queen's unforgettably pulsating soundtrack alone.
A movie 24 years ahead of its time, "Flash Gordon" is just plain barking mad in every department, from the pounding Queen soundtrack to the oppulent sets, colourful visual effects, Brian "Bonkers" Blessed's Prince Vultan, the deliciously dry wit of Max Von Sydow as Ming and Peter Wyngarde as Klytus.
Taste doesn't come into it, "Flash Gordon" is as tacky and camp as they come, but it also has the kind of knowing charm and warmth that make it look like a Bergmann film next to Jerry Bruckhiemer.

 Flash Gordon (Soundtrack) by Howard Blake   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The music of this Eighties-Flash Gordon has certainly been tightly knit with the music of Queen and Blake's score for the film has gone unnoticed and unappreciated for twenty years.
It's just a really enjoyable score, though the overriding simplicity to the orchestrations does mean that it can't really be considered a particularly major work, and at over 50 minutes it does seem to go on for rather a long time.
