Our Man Flint (1966)
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.

This was the America’s answer to Bond, a super agent Derek Flint, and James Coburn plays his part with an outstanding flair. Flint is more scientific in his approach when attacking problems. He’s also more lavish and colorful (he’s into ballet and stuffs James Bond will never be engaged in). He has more girls, and he’s a millionaire to boot ! What more can you expect from this super human hero ? American spirit of independence is also evident in that he’s not an “agent” of any government agency, but an independent “consultant”. The colors are brighter, and actions more wild. If James Bond was Aston Martin, Derek Flint is a drag racer. There’s nothing this man of iron, with science, money, and charm can’t accomplish.

In hind sight I can see how difficult it might have been to out Bond a Bond in this type of movie, and Saul David and Daniel Mann did a masterful job of conjuring up a secret agent a la American style. Is it just my imagination or is James Bond starting to look more like Derek Flint after 40 years with his scentific weapons and out landish story lines ?

James Coburn was at top of his game, and I wished he’d done more sequels to this franchise. Colorful ’60s; looking at this film really convinces you that there was something special about that era.
