The Krays: Myth Behind The Legend

The Krays: Myth Behind The Legend  

Synopsis

Directed by Christopher Matthews and produced by BAFTA-nominated Revelation Films, The Krays: Myth Behind The Legend is the inside story of the Krays, told by the people who really knew them. No hearsay. Just facts.

Ronnie and Reggie Kray remain two of the most infamous criminals in British history. Legends to many, their fame was built on a fearsome reputation and almost mythical celebrity-like status - but who were the real Kray twins?

Born and raised in the East End of London, the Krays became involved in petty crime at a young age, but their dark and violent temperaments soon became apparent when they were called up for National Service. Following a stretch in prison, they eventually received dishonourable discharges and Ronnie and Reggie became embroiled in all aspects of crime including armed robbery, protection rackets and assault.

The public, however, saw them as charming nightclub owners. Their Robin Hood-like reputations were a stark contrast to their real lives. On the surface, they were mixing with celebrities and Lords; enjoying the thrills of the swinging sixties, but behind closed doors they were leading sordid personal lives, orchestrating heinous crimes such as the ‘disappearance’ of Frank Mitchell and the brutal murders of Jack ‘The Hat’ McVitie and George Cornell.

This is the inside story of the Krays, told by people who stood by their side for all those years.
