#2: ORNELLA MUTI AS PRINCESS AURA IN FLASH GORDON (1980)
Imagine waking up to Princess Aura’s face—beats hearing morning talk radio on shitty clock radio speakers, doesn’t it? In the campy 1980 version of Flash Gordon, Aura (played by Italian fox Ornella Muti) resurrects Flash after Ming the Merciless executes him. As if that wake-up call wasn’t enough, Aura, rocking that wonderful gold two-piece outfit, teaches Flash how to use a bunch of cool space technology and tries to kiss him. Sadly for Aura, Flash is a one-minute man. That’s where his name comes from, no?
