Darlington Film Club proudly present a screening of the 1980 cult classic ‘Flash Gordon’ with Flash himself, Sam J Jones attending for a Q&A after the film.

Actor Sam J. Jones was born in Chicago, Illinois but grew up in Sacramento, California. He was educated at Mira Loma High School in Sacramento and went on to serve as a United States Marine.

Jones made his screen debut in Blake Edwards’ 1979 comedy film ‘10’. In 1980, he was cast in the iconic role of Flash Gordon in the cult classic of the same name.
A solid acting career in mostly television roles followed.

Sam came back to moviegoers attention, making a cameo as a version of himself in the comedy films ‘Ted’ & ‘Ted 2’.

In 2019, ‘Life After Flash’, a feature-length documentary starring Jones, directed by Lisa Downs & produced by Ashley Pugh, was released worldwide. ‘Life After Flash’ not only celebrates the 1980 classic featuring interviews with cast, crew and fans including Melody Anderson, Brian Blessed, Peter Wyngarde, Mark Millar, Robert Rodriguez, Stan Lee and Brian May, but also explores the aftermath of when star Sam J Jones went up against one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood: Dino De Laurentiis.

This is definitely one event not to be missed!
