Mike Myers's Austin Powers has nothing on James Coburn's OUR MAN FLINT. If you ever get to see a Flint movie - you'll know where Myer's got the idea for his groovy-baby spy spoof flicks. The advent of Ian Flemming's James Bond franchise in the early sixties brought on a wave of spy movies and spy television shows. Flint wasn't as good as Bond - but I don't think that was the original intent. I believe Flint was meant to be an hip, funny, with plenty of action. Watching the movies for the first time in the seventies, I remember how mod and campy they were even by that time.
