From SAE: Derek Flint (James Coburn)—super-spy, man of multifarious skills, playboy extraordinaire—has his hands full in Our Man Flint (1966), the Bond spoof to end all Bond spoofs. With a team of mad scientists plotting to rule the world by controlling the weather, Flint is called into action by the chief (Lee J. Cobb) of Z.O.W.I.E.—Zonal Organization for World Intelligence and Espionage. Now he must contend with a seductive counter-agent (Gila Golan) and her evil cohort (Edward Mulhare), in a race against time to save the swinging world as we know it. Highlighted by a superb score from Jerry Goldsmith (available here as an isolated track).

In this 1967 sequel to the James Bond spoof, Our Man Flint, superspy Derek Flint (James Coburn) is once again called upon to help out the harried head of Z.O.W.I.E. (Lee J. Cobb), this time sidelined by a scandal engineered by a group of power-hungry women intent on taking over the universe. The ladies, of course, are no match for the irresistible Flint: ballet dancer, dolphin whisperer, electronics expert, and all-around man of the world. Featuring a confectionary score by the one and only Jerry Goldsmith, available here as an isolated track.

  1. Great timing! JUDEX is being released by Criterion in June! I am so looking forward to that. Along with yet another release of Hard Days Night. I wish they would do the Harry Palmer movies.

  2. I wish they would release the Harry Palmer films, too. It's crazy how those titles stay mostly out-of-print.
