Storyline

Loosely based on a true story, Christopher Plummer plays British bank robber Eddie Chapman who finds himself caught between the waring parties in WW2, the British and the Germans. working as a spy for both sides he tries to play the 3rd reich and the British against each other. the real life Chapman described himself as a completely 'amoral' person, which adds a nice philisophical touch to this somewhat colourful spy-flic. Is there any moral in making war ? Even if you're the 'good' fighting 'evil' ? Written by Void-4 <stringybark@iname.com>

Trivia

While the movie ending implies that Baron Von Grunen (Yul Brynner) dies after being shot in the back (or allows the viewer to infer such), actually Chapman and Von Grunen remained friends after the war. Von Grunen even attended the wedding of Chapman's daughter. See more »

Christopher Plummer is sooooo attractive in Triple Cross
21 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. It's got all the right moves. Humor, drama, action scenes, unexpected twists, charming actors. There probably are holes in the story, but it's such a fun, fast-acting movie that I was too busy enjoying it to care. Christopher Plummer is the lead in this film, and he gets a chance to be more than charming. He's downright sexy. And then there's Yul Brynner in breeches and jack boots. Yowwwww! I had a good time watching this film. I have no idea if the uniforms, the planes, the story, or any of it, is accurate to the period. And I don't care. Christopher Plummer with his shirt undone. Demolition experts demonstrating how to detonate things with a mixture of sugar and saltpeter. The great Trevor Howard wearing the world's worst beard. Yul Brynner in jackboots. Just what a war movie ought to be. Triple Cross is available in a Region 2 DVD, but not, as of 1/21/12, in a Region 1. If it were available in Region 1 format, I would snap up a copy so I could watch it often. I hope Christopher Plummer's recent Golden Globe and possible Oscar nomination for "Beginners" might stimulate folks to put out more of his films on DVDs, especially on Region 1 DVDs.
