The Long Firm
Posted by Krayzy Jill on January 6, 2005, 11:32 pm
Did anyone see the BBC TV drama series The Long Firm? Mark Strong plays Harry Starks, a gay gangster of the 60's I thought it was brilliant and there were quite a few referrals to The Krays, events etc what happened. Harry Starks is based on Ronnie Kray, I'm sure. The series was based on a novel written by Jake Arnott and is set in 60's East End of London gangland. I'm reading the book now and it's really good. It's only a novel but it seems like it all really happened. Even Jack The Hat is mentioned, Ronnie Kray is also mentioned, and Harry had an aunt May who told him he was "born to hang" because of his eyebrows meeting in the centre. His grandad also used the white hot poker. So I bet Jake Arnott is a fan of the Krays and based his novel on it. Really good reading. And the drama series was well acted. Mark Strong is a good actor. I'd like to know what other people think
