James Robertson Justice,
Flint is again called out of retirement when his old boss finds that he seems to have missed three minutes while golfing with the president. Flint finds that the president has been replaced by an actor (Flint's line [with a wistful look] is "An Actor as President?") Flint finds that a group of women have banded together to take over the world through subliminal brainwashing in beauty salons they own.Written by

A comment is made "What the hell is this? Sadie Hawkins day?". Sadie Hawkins Day is an annual event that occurs in the fiction world of Li'l Abner (and which was a popular theme for school dances in the sixties and seventies), the comic character written by Al Capp. In the comics, it is the day on which a footrace is held in the hillbilly town of Dogpatch between the community's eligible women and all the eligible bachelors. If a woman catches a man, he has to marry her. In popular culture, a Sadie Hawkins dance is a "backward" dance where the girl does everything from asking the boy to the dance to picking him up and taking him home. See more »
When the Flint girls tell Flint they're going to Fabulous Face in the Virgin Islands, one of them tells Flint that it is only a couple of hours from Rio.
Rio, is over 3,000 miles away, not even the Concord could fly there in a 'couple of hours'; and the Concord didn't start flying until 2 years after the movie was released. See more »
If you ever wondered about how the film series like Austin Powers came to be inspired, James Coburn does a memorable performance as Flint, original man of mystery in this film. The film is a spoof and farce from the James Bond spy thrillers. The plot includes the world being overthrown and manipulated by smart beautiful seductive women on a Caribbean Island where their leader is played by Anna Lee (General Hospital's beloved Lila Quartermaine). She is fantastic in her role. The film is a comedy and a statement about women's movement. The ending is now considered to be outdated by today's standards almost camp humor. Still, James Coburn did some of his best acting work here as the hero. The film is colorful and imaginative as well.
