10 Rillington Place

Film

"10 Rillington Place" is a 1971 British-American crime drama film, directed by Richard Fleischer. It stars Richard Attenborough, John Hurt and Judy Geeson and was adapted by Clive Exton from the book Ten Rillington Place by Ludovic Kennedy.

Place

10 Rillington Place, Ladbroke Grove, Notting Hill, London, was the site of the crimes of John Reginald Halliday Christie, one of Britain's most notorious serial killers. The case against Christie was particularly controversial because of his involvement in an earlier trial where another tenant of Rillington Place, Timothy John Evans, had been found guilty of murder and was sentenced to death by hanging. Christie had provided important testimony against Evans where the latter was found guilty of murdering his baby daughter and was subsequently executed. It was later found out that Christie had been an active serial killer during the time Evans and his wife and daughter had lodged at the premises; Christie was definitively linked to the murder of six women on the site. Because of this and because the prosecution case against Evans was largely based on Christie's testimony, it was widely assumed after Christie's own trial that he had also been responsible for the murders of Evans's wife and daughter.
