Like many British tough-guy actors of the 1950s to the 1970s, Robbery star Stanley Baker liked to hang out with real gangsters (see James Morton: Gangland, 1991). It is not meant to suggest that Baker was a criminal himself, but the fact is that actors and rascals in the 1950s and 1960s used to socialise at the same hours of the night, because in Britain in those days the pubs all closed at 10pm, and people who had to work late had to go to late-night clubs to chill out after hours.
