Synopsis:
Based on Ludovic Kennedy's investigative book, '10 Rillington Place' is the true and horrifying story of English mass murderer John Christie (chillingly played by Richard Attenborough). When Timothy Evans (John Hurt), his wife Beryl (Judy Geeson) and their young daughter move into Christie's house, they unknowingly sign their death warrants. Christie offers to help Beryl have an abortion and uses this opportunity, as he has already done with previous victims, to strangle and rape her. Believing himself to be an accomplice to a fatal abortion, Evans panics and flees with the hope that his child will be looked after; in fact, Christie kills her too. Evans is arrested, charged with double murder, found guilty and hanged. But Christie continues to kill... Attenborough and Hurt give unforgettable performances in this thought-provoking, frightening and atmospheric true crime classic directed by Richard Fleischer.

This is the story of the ordinary man next door who is not what he appears to be. Richard Attenborough portrays that archetypal character in this adaptation of Ludovic Kennedy's book Ten Rillington Place, the true story of landlord John Reginald Christie, a serial killer. In real life, the Christie murders led to the abolition of the death penalty in Britain after executioners hanged an innocent man, Timothy Evans, for one of the murders. This production focuses on events surrounding that landmark case. Director Richard Fleischer filmed the motion picture in the drab London neighborhood where Christie killed his victims and disposed of them in a garden, under the floorboards of his flat, and in a kitchen alcove. Attenborough plays Christie as he was: quiet, meek, seemingly innocuous. Balding, with inscrutable eyes staring out of spectacles, Attenborough's Christie hints subtly that a twisted mind is at work beneath a veneer of ordinariness. However, the gullible tenants upstairs -- Evans (John Hurt) and his pregnant wife, Beryl (Judy Geeson), who have financial problems and a whining infant -- do not see through Christie when he offers to abort Beryl's unborn baby, claiming he has the medical know-how. After they accept his offer, Christie ra-pes and kills Beryl, then frames Evans for the murder. Unlike Tora! Tora! Tora!, director Fleisher's blockbuster film the year before, 10 Rillington Place is a small production of limited scope and action. But it does have three things in common with the previous film: meticulous attention to historical details, excellent acting by the entire cast, and a gradual buildup of suspense. The production, therefore, deserves high marks both as a docudrama and as an artistic achievement.

London, 1949. John Christie is an unassuming, middle aged man who, along with his wife Ethel, manages the apartment building at 10 Rillington Place. His unassuming demeanor masks the fact of being a serial killer. His modus operandi is to act as a person with a medical background, lure unsuspecting women to his apartment on the pretense of curing them of some ailment, knock them unconscious with carbon monoxide gas, gain his sexual release through contact with the unconscious body, then strangle the victim dead before disposing of the body usually by burying it in his back yard. His next intended target is Beryl Evans, a young woman who has just moved into a flat in his building. Beryl's husband, Tim Evans, is an illiterate man who likes to put on airs. Already with an infant daughter named Geraldine, the Evanses learn they are going to have another baby, which they cannot afford to have, nor can they afford to abort the pregnancy. This problem, on top of the constant issue of lack of money in all aspects of their lives, places a strain on the marriage, of which all their neighbors are aware through the constant fighting they overhear. Christie will offer to perform the abortion for free. The difference with this intended murder is that Tim will be aware that his wife will have died, but Christie plans either to goad Tim into keeping silent since the abortion would have been illegal, an act to which Tim would have provided his consent, or pin the murder on Tim who would have motive. Will this change in modus operandi affect Christie's ability to kill Beryl, or kill her without detection?
