        Thanks How
        I know it is easy to read into things with hindsight but from the photos I have seen of Rillington Place, it is one of those places that looked genuinely eerie even from the outside. A chilling house indeed.
        The Richard Attenborough film about Christie was chilling as well and I think the house was still standing then and some of the exterior shots were done in situ.

          Pathe news clip of the 1971 demolition of 10 Rillington Place:

          http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x88...-1971_creation

          It's billed as being silent but has a narrator so I am not sure why we are not getting the sound.

          The filming locations for the 1971 film "10 Rillington Place" starring Richard Attenborough as Trevor Christie are listed on the IMDb site and include both nos. 6 and 10 Rillington Place, locations in Wales, and Shepperton Studios, among other places.

            Many thanks for the update Chris
            So the Attenborough film must have been done just as the house was about to go

              Hi Chris

              Well as we know it can take some time to film a motion picture and release it, so it might have been filmed the year before.

                This is all fine and well...but would we seriously want it demolished after seeing the mysterious lodger in the flat at top right ?
                I think not...

                      I've always just seen this house as a really grim looking place.
                      The excellent film made it look that way inside too.
                      Attenborough gave such a brilliant, haunting performance as Christie. Unforgettable.

                        10 Rillington Place is my all-time favourite film, brilliantly acted by the late, great Lord Richard attenborough and John Hurt.
                        If there are better acting performances in a film, then i've not seen any!
                        Truely gripping.

                          Attenborough really should have won major awards for his performance, which is right up there with Hopkins' later portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in terms of blood-chilling creepiness, and arguably bests it.

                            I couldn't agree more Sam!
