Jean Rogers news, related photos and videos, and reviews of Jean Rogers performances. According to Wikipedia: Jean Rogers was an American actress. She won a national beauty contest in 1933 and was offered a contract by a Hollywood producer. Rogers got her biggest assignment when she played the role of Dale Arden in the first two Flash Gordon serials between 1936 and 1939. Buster Crabbe and Jean Rogers were perfectly cast as hero and heroine in the first serial, and Rogers' fragile beauty, long blonde hair, and revealing costume endeared her to thousands of moviegoers during the late 1930's. She was lusted after by "Ming the Merciless" and most of the male audience as Flash Gordon rescued her from one life threatening situation after another in the serial. Rogers also competed with Priscilla Lawson for Flash Gordon's amorous attention in the first serial. Rogers and Lawson were two completely different character actresses. Jean Rogers was fragile, small-chested, diminutive and totally dependent on the all-powerful Flash Gordon for her survival. Lawson, on the other hand, was domineering, independent, voluptuous, well endowed, conniving, sly, and determined to take Flash for herself. The competition between the two women for Buster Crabbe's attention is one of the main highlights of the film. In the second Flash Gordon Serial, Jean Rogers sports a totally different look. She has dark hair and wears the same full length, modest costume in each episode. Rogers matured both physically and mentally after the first serial, and there are no sexual overtones in "Trip To Mars" as there were in "Planet Mongo." They also starred as an assistant in a feature-length film, Jack Benny (1911), about a young child struggling with his father's love for his beloved little brother. Also in American television, Rogers starred as Dr Z, the first human being to fly over the Antarctic, in the American Civil War drama "The Rising Tide" by Henry Zieg...
