Something I forgot to mention was that Rommel had an illegitimate daughter who knitted a check scarf for her dad which he can be seen wearing even when in full uniform.Yes you're right about his wife and son, I should of mentioned that, Apologies. Not sure if I've seen a really decent film about his life, A couple of TV dramas have been ok and the James Mason film is watchable but seriously lacking in one of those biopic films that had the whole package.
I remember my brother had the soundtrack album by Queen. Used to listen to it a lot. Film very cheesy but Brian Blessed made it all worth it. Did you spot Peter Duncan from Blue Peter? He was only in it fleetingly.Flash Gordon
First time I've seen since I went to the flicks as an 11 yr old in 1980. Being a young'un, I didn't realise how cheesy it was. Some of it jaw-droppingly so. I don't think my kids minded much though. Just concerns that Flash the super hero didn't have any real super powers.
A stella cast though and some great costumes...and what a soundtrack!
