Two space cadets crash-land on a desert planet, where an evil wizard seeks the ultimate power to take over the world. Although the movie borrows some background footage from Star Wars, the plot is mostly unrelated.
The world's weather seems to have changed dramatically with violent storms everywhere and long dormant volcanoes suddenly erupting. No one is sure what is happening or why but when American intelligence chief Cramden loses yet another team of agents, there appears to be only one man who can do the job: Derek Flint, former super spy, incredibly rich and the ultimate ladies man. Despite Cramden's concerns, Flint is on the job and soon discovers that the Earth's weather is under the control of a secret organization known as GALAXY whose scientists are looking to pacify the world and devote humankind to scientific pursuits.

The odd, discordant guitar part played throughout the movie, which is used almost note for note nearly 20 years later by an up and coming band, is a testament to the enduring quality of the composer's music. The band, Wall of Voodoo, best known for its early 1980s hit "Mexican Radio", uses that strange note progression in its updated remake of the Johnny Cash hit, "Ring of Fire." Their version, however, is a nearly ten-minute-long experiment in what would later be termed as techno music. Its mechanical programmed background rhythm and synth-heavy adaption paved the way for later bands. But its use of the riff from this film performed nearly musically verbatim, that makes their version so intriguing. See more »

Okay, time to get serious: it is not an understatement to declare that Our Man Flint is one of the greatest movies ever made in the entire history of cinema! Haha! It's so much fun!
Heck, how can you not love a movie in which Dick Wilson - the guy who played Mr. Whipple in the Charmin toilet paper commercials for more than 20 years - plays an agent for that evil insidious organization, Galaxy?
The two-film Flint series would never have been the incredibly popular spy spoof that it was - made at the height of the 007/Man From U.N.C.L.E./Wild Wild West/Matt Helm craze - if anyone other than the great James Coburn had been cast. The man was born to play the role.
It all comes together: Jerry Goldsmith's zippy spy music; beautiful babacious Gila Golan and Edward Mulhare as rotten rat Rodney and then of course, its legendary spoofing.
From the LBJ impersonator, to Benson Fong's Dr. Schneider and Peter Brocco's Dr. Wu, to Flints lighter that performs 82 separate functions...83 if you want to light a cigar, Our Man Flint is just the greatest fun!
