Sad goodbye to Mariangela

Mariangela Melato
Mariangela Melato

So sad to hear of the passing of another shining icon, Italian film star Mariangela Melato. You might not know the name instantly, but anyone who has seen our Flash Gordon movie will immediately know her as the fabulous and unforgettable camp-sadistic General Kala, who says “What do you mean – Flash Gordon approaching? Open fire – all Weapons!!!” Freddie was particularly fond of her … which might have had something to do with her expert use of the whip !! ha ha !

Have a look and shed a tear.

RIP Mariangela
