"I can't help that, Aura. Keeping our word is one of the things that make us better than you."

I don’t think Melody Anderson gets enough credit for her portrayal of Dale Arden. She understands that camp works best when played with absolute deadpan sincerity.

What in the hell did Ming make his Mongo minions out of? Here’s what General Klytus looked like after Flash tossed him onto some spikes.

And when General Kala was shot, this happened.

Come to think of it, the unfortunate Prince Thun’s royal blood was literally blue, and Ming’s own vital fluids were green. The Mongonian gene pool was apparently more of a swamp.

This is Dr. Zarkov’s lab assistant, Munson. He was crushed to death by a crashing plane.

This is Red Six, also known as Porkins. He was shot down over the Death Star.

Needed an unlucky S.O.B. for your film? William Hootkins (1948-2005) was your go-to guy.

Sam J. Jones had his hair dyed blond for his role as Flash, but that isn’t all that was changed. Allegedly, most of his dialogue was redubbed by an unidentified voice actor. And if you’ve ever seen any of Jones’ other Hollywood work, you understand why.

Here’s a sequence from the 1987 TV movie adaptation of the comic book hero The Spirit. Skip ahead to the one-minute mark for a sample of Jones’ dialogue delivery. On the other hand, start the clip from the beginning for a pre-Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Nana Visitor lounging in a bikini.

I know which I’d recommend.

As much as I love the costumes in this film, this Lizard Man design sucks hard. His face is inside his own mouth. And how exactly do those fangs work?
