By the name Bentley.|
'Let Him Have It' is a 1991 British film set in 1952 and based on the true story of the case against Derek Bentley, who was hanged for murder under controversial circumstances.
The second verse of "Anyone For Tennis" goes:
And the ice creams are all melting on the streets of bloody beer
While the beggars stain the pavements with flourescent Christmas cheer
And the Bentley driving guru is putting up his price
Anyone for tennis, wouldn't that be nice?
Incidently, the film's end titles state that Bentley's sister Iris was still fighting for his pardon, however seven years after the film was made and after numerous unsuccessful campaigns to get Derek Bentley a full pardon, he was posthumously pardoned on 30 July 1998. However, Bentley's sister had also passed away by this point.
