Let Him Have It

Compiled by Jack Foley

ON AUGUST 9, 2010 Let Him Have it is released on DVD and we have 5 copies to give-away.

The film details the real life events of the infamous Bentley/Craig case which saw Bentley, who had the mental age of an 11 year old, hang for murder in 1953.

The words on Bentley’s gravestone read: “Derek William Bentley – A victim of British justice?”

The two teenagers, Derek Bentley (Christopher Eccleston) and Chris Craig, had been caught by police during a robbery.

Bentley was arrested immediately on the scene but Craig, a gun-toting hoodlum, refused to give up his weapon. Bentley shouted out to his friend to: “Let him have it!” causing Craig to fire at the officers chasing him; injuring one officer and killing another.

But did Bentley mean shoot the policeman or hand over the gun?
