Stag parties and Brighton Rock

stagflyerI don’t head down to Brighton seafront enough on Saturday nights. But a few weeks back I did enjoy a drink at the Fortune of War and I was totally amused by these flyers that some chaps on a stag do were giving out. Essentially: spot the groom and claim a pint. A fun idea and plenty of folk were enjoying it. Especially the girls.

I may be over analysing it, but it reminded me of the start of Brighton Rock with Hale aka Kolley Kibber. Readers are looking for the newspaper’s man in the hope of a monetary reward, using a published picture and looking for the calling cards he’s leaving around the town. Thankfully our stag didn’t meet the same end as Hale.
