Derek Flint (James Coburn) is the man to call when there's a global crisis. Flint is an expert at everything, unflappable, and a lady's man. When shown a gadget-filled briefcase full of weapons, Flint counters that his cigarette lighter does all of those things and more. Mad scientists are threatening the world with a weather making machine that causes earthquakes and other disasters. Their machine is on an island where the scientists are served by beautiful women who have been hypnotized into acting as "pleasure units." Flint blows up the machine, escapes with one of the girls and saves the world.
