SYNOPSIS

At a subterranean secret meeting, the international delegates of ZOWIE (Zonal Organization World Intelligence Espionage) learn that a mysterious organization called GALAXY is planning to rule the world by controlling the weather. Computers indicate that the man best qualified to prevent such a catastrophe is Derek Flint, an irresponsible but expert secret agent who lives in luxurious bliss with four exotic international beauties. At first Flint is reluctant to accept the assignment, but he changes his mind when several murder attempts are made not only upon him but also on Cramden, the head of ZOWIE. Using as his only weapon a cigarette lighter with 83 functions, Flint learns that the three mad scientists heading GALAXY are operating out of Marseilles. Once there, he is almost killed by Gila, a GALAXY agent. He trails her to Rome but is captured and taken to GALAXY headquarters on a remote volcanic island. Playing dead, he learns that his four exotic roommates are also captives and that GALAXY has demanded that the entire world surrender or be destroyed within one hour. After killing a guard and switching clothing, Flint makes a quick tour of the electric weather controlling plant and formulates a plan of action. Although he is once more captured by the three scientists, he again escapes and makes a desperate attempt to rescue his four roommates and Gila, by now among the women in love with him. He disrupts the electrical equipment, saves the women and rides them to safety down a waterfall as the entire island and its personnel are blown ... +
