He was the best - undisciplined but the best.

Erratic weather, global disaster, eco-terrorism. 21st century problems? Guess again: these issues are circa 1966! Out-of-control earthquakes and pop-up volcanoes are just part of a world-saving mission for super agent Derek Flint. James Coburn portrays the uber spy who is tops at everything from seduction and deduction to dolphin chit-chat. When the world's intelligence agencies realize their top operatives are being picked off, Flint's former boss, intelligence chief Cramden, played by Lee J. Cobb, grudgingly calls in "the original man of mystery.” Flint battles the controlling secret organization GALAXY, all while keeping his cool and his mojo. As an Americanized version of James Bond, Flint's over-the-top persona as the sexiest, suavest, smartest, and sportiest spy is 007 taken to the extreme. Following the screening, International Spy Museum Executive Director Peter Earnest, will discuss how pop culture portrayals of spies and villains affected his own career as an officer in the Clandestine Service of the CIA during the 60s and 70s. He may even reveal whether all spies really are glamorous playboys.

Tickets: $9
Members of The Inner Circle: $7
