A lighthearted 1966 parody of ''Film/JamesBond'' movies, starring Creator/JamesCoburn as super-mega-omnicool (ex-)Z.O.W.I.E. agent Derek Flint, along with Lee J. Cobb as his harried former boss, Lloyd Cramden. Flint is forced out of retirement to battle Galaxy, an organization led by a trio of Utopian [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]] out to take over the world via their weather-control machine. His investigation leads him across Europe to Galaxy agents Gila and Rodney, and eventually Galaxy's secret headquarters. You can guess [[CollapsingLair what happens then]].

Easily one of the best of the slew of [[TheSixties 1960s]] [[FollowTheLeader Bond imitations]]. A year later a sequel came out, ''In Like Flint'', which was a fairly lackluster rehash. This, plus Coburn's reported desire to avoid being typecast in the role, put an end to any thought of an ongoing franchise, though many years later an in-name-only "sequel" was made for TV starring Ray Danton as Flint.

A major influence on the ''AustinPowers'' movies, to the point the sequel was explicitly referred to as being the title character's favorite movie.

!!''In Like Flint'' features:

* AshesToCrashes: Flint escapes after falling onto a conveyor belt leading to a document incinerator during a fight scene. It helps that the villains thought they had finished him off.

* ClockDiscrepancy: Cramden discovers the plot to replace the President with an EvilTwin when he times the President's golf swing and his watch says it took 3 minutes.

* FaceNodAction
* FollowTheBouncingBall
* HarmlessFreezing: Flint's girlfriends and the cryogenic freezers.
* ImprobableTaxonomySkills
* InsaneTrollLogic: At one point Flint breaks into Z.O.W.I.E's headquarters to investigate two people. The only information he manages to find on them is their heart rate measures, and he then declares the following:
-->Flint: 80 heartbeats per minute. Must be Russian cosmonauts!

* StandInPortrait
* StrawFeminist: the villains are essentially four women in the fashion and beauty industries who decide to take over the world because they believe women are superior to men in everything. As the movie came out before Second Wave Feminism took off, they are missing some of the more usual traits for this trope.

* SwordOfDamocles: The nuclear-armed space platorm (a.k.a. "Project Damocles") that Gen. Carter takes control of.
