Eddie Chapman was one of the most bizarre characters to emerge from world war II and his extraordinary exploits form the subject of triple cross, the star-packed 1960s movie from acclaimed 'James Bond' director Terence Young. Suave, witty, daring, handsome and utterly amoral, British safe-cracker Eddie Chapman is quite prepared to work for whichever side offers him the greatest thrills - and the most money. he can either offer his services as a spy to the Nazis or remain loyal to Britain and face a lengthy jail sentence. He opts for the former. But various Nazis doubt Chapman's loyalty to their cause, and with good reason. Making contact with the British, Chapman offers to act as a double agent - for a fee, or course. Thus a 'legend' is born. But just how far is Chapman prepared to lie and scheme to help one side win the war?
