When I first read the title of this, I missed where it said “Sam” and only got “Star Jones Prevented a Flash Gordon Sequel” so I was trying to figure out how she impacted this show!

Wow, how unfortunate that miscommunication resulted in a lost production. I’m sure this happens more often than we hear.

That's funny, because I was thinking of that when I wrote it! :laugh:

One movie I'd love to track down that Sam Jones did was "The Spirit," based on Will Eisner's comic strip. From what I've heard it was a made for tv movie, and it co starred Nana Visitor (Kira from DS9). As far as I know it's never had any kind of official release, so it's a pretty obscure bootleg.

I looked it up, but couldn't find anything beyond that 2009 version. So yeah, you're looking at a bootleg until the current rights owners get around to releasing it. Hey, they released Tales of the Gold Monkey which I never thought would happen, so there's always hope for this!

Well, all I can say is, thank God it went the way it did. That 1980 movie was AWFUL.

I finally rented Frank Miller's film a while back. It really has nothing to do with Eisner's creation beyond sharing the character names.
