Movie Info

Though Roger Moore was born in England and established himself as star of the British TV series The Saint, Crossplot represents Moore's very first British theatrical film. He stars as an advertising executive swept up in a plot to murder a visiting African statesman. Lensed in "swinging" London, the film is "mod" to an almost depressing degree, obscuring what is at base a solid espionage thriller. Moore ultimately thwarts the villains by decoding a message secreted in a crossword puzzle -- hence the film's title. A climactic shootout in Hyde Park tops this dry run for Roger Moore's subsequent stint as James Bond.

Crossplot was made in late sixties, Roger Moore plays a fashion photographer, he finds a woman's photograph with others wanting audition for the fashion add. He wants use her photograph but he needs permission and interest taking more. Her boyfriend believes he is there for a drug bust and deportation. Poor Roger Moore all he wants is model for a fashion magazine. This is before James Bond, it is a fun to watch,romance, action, groovy sixties.
