Flash Gordon original 1936. I remembered it from re runs in the 70s.

Steampunk and full of styles and themes discussed right here on this forum. Looks like it could be Metropolis Pt 2...

I have only skipped through it, but even so it appears to be a stolen history goldmine. Hoping to watch in full later in the week & report back.

Did notice an interesting depiction of the earth, with an apparently connected Europe & Africa...and lit from multiple sides... and in the same clip, they are leaving the stratosphere... around 7 minute mark You Tube
