Will and Lew:  I was never a fan of the Bond films – probably for the reasons Will has stated.  However, I greatly enjoyed that wonderful spoof of these films in James Coburn’s Our Man Flint.  Derek Flint was the self-directed individualist who, quite reluctantly,  joined the government agency – Z.O.W.I.E. – and confronted the evil forces intent on taking over the world.  When the U.S. government informed him of the various people who would be joining his efforts, he replied that he was joining them, that they were not joining him. Some wonderful lines/scenes for libertarians.
