Theres really been only one rival to James Bond: Derek Flint. Thats because of James Coburns special brand of American cool. Hes so cool, in fact, that he doesnt care to save the world. That is, until hes personally threatened. Hes a true libertarian, with more gadgets and girls than Bond, but with none of his stress or responsibility. In Our Man Flint (1966), hes totally unflappable as he thwarts mad scientists who control the weather--and an island of pleasure drones. Lee J. Cobb costars as Flints flustered superior, and Edward Mulhare plays a British nemesis with snob appeal. For fans of Austin Powers, incidentally, the funny-sounding phone comes from the Flint films. However, the best gadget remains the watch that enables Flint to feign death. Theres a great Jerry Goldsmith score, too. There was bound to be a Flint sequel, and In Like Flint (1967) delivers the same kind of zany fun as its predecessor. Flint is recruited once again by Lee J. Cobb to be the government

|ring tones for our man fling||
the only one I've encountered over the years is from the Austin Powers series, which plays it backwards in homage to Our Man Flint, or is it actually plagiarism? ps. Nice Freudian slip there, Our Man "FLING", indeed!
