This film came out a few months before the launch of the original Star Trek series. While Leonard Nimoy had the idea for the "Vulcan nerve pinch" during the first season, Derek Flint uses the same neck pinch months earlier to paralyze the fake President, which could indicate a subconscious nod to Flint by Nimoy.

In the theater when Flint is dancing ballet with Natasha and shows the audience clapping at the end , that scene is obviously taken from another period film because the characters are dressed in military uniforms and female costumes of the nineteenth century . See more »
If you ever wondered about how the film series like Austin Powers came to be inspired, James Coburn does a memorable performance as Flint, original man of mystery in this film. The film is a spoof and farce from the James Bond spy thrillers. The plot includes the world being overthrown and manipulated by smart beautiful seductive women on a Caribbean Island where their leader is played by Anna Lee (General Hospital's beloved Lila Quartermaine). She is fantastic in her role. The film is a comedy and a statement about women's movement. The ending is now considered to be outdated by today's standards almost camp humor. Still, James Coburn did some of his best acting work here as the hero. The film is colorful and imaginative as well.
