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.Written by
Agent 0008 has an intentional resemblance to Sean Connery / 007 and at one point uses Connery's mild Scottish accent. Naturally, being the superior agent, Flint kicks 0008's tail. See more »
In the Reward Room, the discotheque area is silent with the doors closed. The music can only be heard with the doors open. But when one of the dancers opens them, she does so by sticking her hands through the "glass" in the doors. And when the men enter the room, they enter through the open doors and the "glass" panels on each side. See more »

OK, in retrospective, we should all know that 1960s espionage was all about cool dudes battling evil, and attracting hot babes in the process (though the latter often overshadowed the former, as Austin Powers showed). "Our Man Flint" is no exception. I will say that Derek Flint (James Coburn) isn't exactly James Bond, but he has his merits. The movie mostly seems like an excuse to experience that ultra-cool feeling that always emanated from the spy movies of the '60s, and they achieve that.
So, even if it isn't James Bond, it's still very enjoyable. Also starring Lee J. Cobb...and a bunch of half-dressed women.
So during that era, the four most important spies were James Bond, Derek Flint, Harry Palmer and Maxwell Smart.
