Synopsis

10 Rillington Place (1970) box art British mass murderer John Reginald Christie (Richard Attenborough) lures Beryl Evans (Judy Geeson) to his flat with the promise of performing an abortion. When he strangles and rapes her, Evans's husband, Timothy (John Hurt), is wrongly convicted and hanged for the crime. Attenborough's chillingly banal portrayal of Christie is a highlight in this adaptation of the real-life case, which led to Britain's abolition of the death penalty.
