Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars
 
1938 - 15 Chapters
 
Plot
 
Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars is a 1938 serial film of 15 episodes, based on the comic strip Flash Gordon. It is the second of three Flash Gordon serials made between 1936 and 1940.
 
The main cast from first serial reprise their roles: Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon, Jean Rogers as Dale Arden, Frank Shannon as Dr. Alexis Zarkov and Charles B. Middleton as Ming the Merciless.
 

The story opens as a fictional chemical element called nitron is vanishing from the Terrestrial atmosphere, causing hurricanes and other meteorological disasters; whereupon Flash and Zarkov discover that a ray-beam from Mars is the source of the nitron depletion. A comical newspaper journalist, Happy Hapgood, stows away when they and Dale Arden investigate in Zarkov's rocket ship. Later, they discover that Azura, Queen of Mars, is working with Ming the Merciless to conquer Earth, while all Martians who oppose her have become changed into clay humanoids, consigned to live in a world of clay-walled caverns beneath the Martian soil. Flash, Zarkov, Dale, and Happy take refuge in one of these caverns and co÷perate with the Clay King to destroy the Nitron Lamp draining the Earth's atmosphere, restore the Clay People to their human form, and defeat Ming.
