Triple Cross is a 1966 Anglo-French co-produced film directed by Terence Young and produced by Jacques-Paul Bertrand. It was based loosely on the real life story of Eddie Chapman, believed by the Nazis to be their top spy in Great Britain whilst in fact he was an MI5 double agent known as “Zigzag”.

In his autobiography, Christopher Plummer said that Chapman was to have been a technical adviser on the film but the French authorities would not allow him in the country because he was still wanted over an alleged plot to kidnap the Sultan of Morocco.
