The real life Kray twins disliked this film because it portrayed their mum swearing. See more
In the boxing scene at the fairground, the twins' are portrayed as young adults and that the fight between them transpires after Ronnie knocks out the prize fighter - this incident actually took place when they were both small boys. The ringmaster shouted to the crowd if anyone wanted to take on the show fighter and the young Ronnie Kray shouted that he'd fight him. Amid much laughter, the referee pointedly said he was a bit young - whereupon Reggie stepped up and challenged his brother. They fought gamely, and were both awarded half a crown for their efforts; this was also the bout that led to their later semi-professional careers as pugilists. See more
I don't think it's possible to love someone too much but I think you can love them in the wrong way.
The film's epilogue (which originally only explained the twins' prison sentences for their crimes) was updated on versions released for TV and video in 1995 to include an epitaph after Ronnie Kray's death that year. The same was done for Reggie, who died in 2000. See more
