Ten Rillington Place (DVD)
- Feature Film
Originally produced as a motion picture in 1970.
Based on the book Ten Rillington Place by Ludovic Kennedy.
In 1959, an innocent man, Timothy Evans, is charged with the gruesome slaying of his wife and baby. Convicted by the testimony of his landlord, John Christie, a mild-mannered ex-policeman, Evans is sentenced to hang. However, after the execution, evidence reveals that the real psychotic killer is continuing his mass murder spree. Public outcry over this true case led to Great Britain abolishing the death penalty.
