Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with the occasional hint of professionalism.
This week, Scott and Steven review the true life crime movie ‘Ten Rillington Place’ from 1971. With John Hurt, Judy Geeson, and a chilling performance from Richard Attenborough as notorious serial killer John Christie.
A seemingly model citizen living in mid-century London, John Christie (Richard Attenborough) is actually a killer. Masquerading as a doctor, he convinces guileless women that he can cure whatever might ail them, and when they follow him to his home, he chokes them to death and buries them in a makeshift graveyard. Based on a series of real-life killings, the story follows John as he cons a pregnant bride (Judy Geeson) and wonders if he might have found a scapegoat in her husband (John Hurt).
