The Krays (1990)

4 factual errors - chronological order

(1 vote)

Factual error: If you look at the band playing in the Regal Club the night the boy's mother first visits, the night where they first bring on the donkey, you'll notice that the drum kit used by the drummer in the band is, from what we can see, a 1980's Pearl kit, far too modern. (00:39:00)

Factual error: Aunt Rose died in 1955 and not when Reggie and Frances were on their honeymoon. (02:44:35)

Factual error: The recruits' hair is far too long when they parade after being conscripted. In those days Army recruits practically had their heads shaved - sideburns were shaved off to one inch above the ear (Army regulations). Curiously, this applies to the Staff Sergeant too - his hair would barely be visible under his hat.

Factual error: When Reggie Kray goes to visit Frances' parents for the first time he is driving a 'D' registered car, this would mean that the car was from 1966. This event happened before 1966 as they were married in April 1965.

Trivia: The Kray twins were played by the Kemp brothers Gary and Martin, who are not twins. The Kemps are the founders of the well-known British band Spandau Ballet, who were very well-known in the 1980s.
