(Richard Fleischer, 1971). This grimly efficient treatment of a once-notorious casethe story of London serial killer John Christie and the hapless sub-literate who took the fall by confessing to the murder of his own wife and childis more highly regarded these days than when it was first released. In the giant squid from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, director Fleischer created the scariest ever Disney monster. Richard Attenborough is comparable, playing the prim, repressed killer with a single, quizzically pursed expression and an insinuating sibilant voice that drips like poison into your ear.
