Nonetheless my favourite appearances of his career were as Timothy Evans in "10 Rillington Place" (speaking of Welsh drunks) and as high-class pimp Stephen Ward in "Scandal". The latter role can't have been an easy one to nail but he was supremely smarmy in it.

Rillington Place is excellent! Heard that it was filmed in the actual house where the murders took place. Must have only heightened Attenborough's terrifying performance and Hurt's vulnerability. Must see Scandal. Joanne Whalley, Britt Ekland and Bridget Fonda in the same movie only makes it even more enticing.
