Our Man Flint (1966)

Our Man Flint (1966)
50 years ago today...
"Our Man Flint" was released.  The film was a campy and colorful parody of the James Bond films, starring James Coburn as Derek Flint.  Flint takes James Bond's über-competence and cranks it up to a ridiculous degree.  He speaks 45 languages, is an Olympic medalist, and is an expert in everything from judo to ballet.  It's basically just one joke repeated over and over again throughout the film, but the film still works, largely due to the charm and star power that Coburn brings to the role.
