11/9/1990 The Krays slither in

November 9, 1990.  You may have heard about a movie based on the true story of Reggie and Ronnie Kray, twin gangsters who  were leaders of organized crime in London in the swinging sixties.  That would be Legend, starring Tom Hardy, and opening November 20.

But on this date in 1990 The Krays opened.  It starred Gary and Martin Kemp, and Billie Whitelaw.

The Krays were vicious criminals but they left a surprising trail through popular culture.  Remember the Piranha Brothers?
