A Dim Memory Comes To Life

If you were to ask me about the oldest movie I could ever recollect seeing, I wouldn't know the name of it, but I would be able to tell you about an action movie where the hero busts out his football moves to take down a room full of bad guys.

Turns out, I didn't make that memory up. In fact, I remembered the scene fairly accurately. It's from Flash Gordon, which came out when I was 4 years old. The scene in question starts 8 minutes into this clip:

It's so eerie to be able to confirm a memory I've had for so many years. Oh YouTube, what would we do without you?

Apparently, you can watch the entire movie in 10 minute blocks. Just start with the first one here.

I rewatched part of it, and my gosh, it's cheesy. But man, that football scene still rocks.


  1. If I'm not mistaken, you can watch the entire movie on Hulu (can't check here at the office, hulu and other video sites like youtube and others are blocked)

  2. Oooh, thanks Nick!

    Not that watching it in 10 minute increments isn't tons of fun.
