OUR MAN FLINT
starstarstarstar
James Coburn's first starring role casts him as Derek Flint, a suave 007-type secret agent with Zonal Organization World Intelligence, or Z.O.W.I.E. Flint, who's proficient in everything from martial arts to speaking dolphin and, of course, women, is called in to put a stop to GALAXY, a secret organization led by an evil tycoon (Edward Mulhare) seeking to dominate the world via weather control. Flint sets out with his cigarette lighter, which has some 83 uses, and locates the three scientists who have masterminded the plot. He goes head-to-head with a dangerous beauty (Gila Golan), sent to assassinate his boss (Lee J. Cobb), and he's later captured by the evil GALAXY, but fear not; Flint manages to escape and save the planet. The script is loaded with holes and the direction is tired, but the film is still one of the better Bond spoofs. Jerry Goldsmith's swinging score helps, and the decor--particularly Flint's remote control bachelor pad--served as a bottomless well of inspiration for the enormously popular AUSTIN POWERS series some 30 years later. Coburn returned for IN LIKE FLINT, the 1967 sequel. leave a comment
