Yesterday, I stumbled onto a site called the Internet Archive. A very interesting site. Here you can find a little bit of everything. One of the things I found was the first Flash Gordon serial “Space Soldiers.” I wasn’t born when these came out in the movie theaters, but I did get to see some on Saturday mornings when they were put on TV.
I would ride to my bike to my neighbor’s house who had the first TV in the Douglas, Oklahoma area. I am sure the black and white TV was no larger than 15 to 17 inches, but I thought it was a magic machine.
Buster Crabbe (aka Flash Gordon) was my idol. After watching the current episode, I would ride back home and pretend I was Flash fighting Ming the merciless ruler of the planet Mongo.
It is interesting to look back and recall a time gone by. If you were a Flash Gordon fan, you might like to return to the past as well and look at some vintage entertainment. Here is the link. http://www.archive.org/details/FirstFlashGordonSerial1936-13Chapters-BusterCrabbe
Look around the site for other things that my interest you. There is a link to the Gutenberg Library and it has plenty of free e-books to download. Some are audio.
I can get lost on the Internet and do so often.
