Our Man Flint

Synopsis: The world's weather seems to have changed dramatically with violent storms everywhere and long dormant volcanoes suddenly erupting. No one is sure what is happening or why but when American intelligence chief Cramden loses yet another team of agents, there appears to be only one man who can do the job: Derek Flint, former super spy, incredibly rich and the ultimate ladies man. Despite Cramden's concerns, Flint is on the job and soon discovers that the Earth's weather is under the control of a secret organization known as GALAXY whose scientists are looking to pacify the world and devote humankind to scientific pursuits.

Gentlemen? Gentlemen, it's quite true.The weather continues to defy nature.

Overnight the temperatureat the Arctic has risen 4.9F.

Gentlemen! Another five degrees

and Haifa Harbour is completely under water!

It's true. New York, San Francisco, NewOrleans, Marseilles - every port's in danger.

- Who is doing this? And why?- It's the work of madmen.

Mad, sane...

They're brilliant.

They're demonstrating thatthey can control the weather!

Turn wheat belts into deserts,put icebergs in the Mediterranean.

- Control the weather, you control the world.- What do they want?

- Why haven't they contacted us?- Oh, they will.

But we're not going to wait for them.We've just had our first break.

According to this dispatch I just received,our team of agents has them cornered!

At any second...

It was a trap.

We just lost another team of agents.

- They know every move we make!- They have a superb intelligence unit.

How can I find that laboratoryif I keep losing manpower?

- How about 0008?- Unfortunately he is not available.

- International narcotics.- Please. We can't use 0008.

They have a file on all our personnel. Wehave to recruit from outside the organisation.

- Maybe my office is a better place to talk...- I doubt it, sir.

Well, once you realise the importanceofthis project, I know you'll be interested...

You know the high regard I havefor you and your organisation.

- Thank you.- But I think your file on me needs updating.

You see, as of late my interestsare less governmental than personal.

All right for today?

Excellent, carissima.


Now, Flint, in the pastyou and I have had our differences of...

Well, discipline is a vital factor...

that every citizen has got...

Don't wave the flag in the bathroom.Just come to the point.

Excuse me.

Flint, the government needs you.

Yes, well, it's good to be wanted, sir.

This is the most important assignmentever offered!

I hope you find a good man for your project.

- Ohayo gozaimasu, Derek.- Ohayo gozaimasu, honey.

Man does not live by bread alone.


Now, Flint, every computer designated youthe best man for the job.

- That must have pleased you.- Look, I don't bear a grudge.

- I know we've had our disagreements...- Sir, you know it doesn't work between us.

Later, baby.

- Do you want a shave, sir?- Flint, the world's in trouble!

It usually is, but it managesto extricate itselfwithout my help.

You're still the same old selfish, arrogant...!

- Sir, you're getting edgy.- Don't tell me...!



But l...

Good evening, Monsieur Flint.

Paul, table number one.

- Thank you, Maurice.- The pleasure is mine, Monsieur Flint. Merci.

Stand back, folks. Please stand back.Give the man some air. Thank you very much.

Give me that candle.

Why would anyone want to kill Mr Cramden?

I think that dart was meant for me.

It seems I have ajobwhether I want one or not.

Gentlemen, the new head of ouroperations team, the man you selected,

Derek Flint.

Thank you, gentlemen.I accept this assignment.

Oh, I'm sorry about that crude incision, sir.

Thank you, gentlemen.We'll now have a private briefing.

I owe you my life.The medics said four more seconds...

- Three, sir.- Dammit, is there anything you don't know?

A great many things, sir.

Now, ifyou'll excuse me,I'll need a few hours to prepare.

It worries me when he stops his heart.It's over three hours, isn't it?

Yes, but it does relax him.

Must be a dangerous assignment.
