What Queen Elizabeth II’s favorite movie?
Blessed said that one of the favorite films of the monarch is Flash Gordon, an American and British film from 1980, based on the comic of the same name and tells the story of a rugby player who fights against a galactic emperor who endangers planet Earth.
The actor said the following in an interview published by Yahoo Movies:
“It’s the Queen’s favorite movie. He sees her with his grandchildren every Christmas.”
As an anecdote he said that at one point the queen asked him to say the iconic phrase: “Is Gordon alive?”.
Blessed was decorated by Queen Elizabeth in 2016 with the insignia of the Order of the British Empire for his services to the arts and charity.
