The Rock Men, as older people will will know (and hopefully some younger ones!) appeared in the third Flash Gordon cinema serial, usually known as 'Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe', 1940. These Rock Men spoke backwards, though it has long been known that they generally spoke the correct lines from the script. Their utterances were then extracted & most likely recorded on lacquer discs. These were then played in reverse and dubbed back into the sound track. An enormous amount of work must have gone into this! A couple of years ago I put on my website a short audio sample of their speech the right way round, and today have gone a step further by contriving a short video which has the speech of the Rock Men coming out the right way round. Ah well: it was a dull early Winter's day and I couldn't think of anything better to do!
