Girls, gimmicks, girls, gags, and more girls are the essential parameters of In Like Flint. With James Coburn encoring as the urbane master sleuth, also harried boss Lee J. Cobb, this pic turns on a femme plot to take over the world.
As for the story, the tongue is best put way out in the cheek. Anne Lee, ever a charming and gracious screen personality, is part of a triumvirate bent on seizing world power.
Lee’s plot in this film comes a cropper when her male allies – corrupt General Steve Ihnat and cohorts, who have substituted an actor, Andrew Duggan, for the real US President, also played by Duggan – move in to snatch the ultimate prize.
While the dialog scenes tend to be a mite sluggish, pace picks up regularly with slam-bang action sequences.
