A classic. Stand By Me.
Such a great movie!Spence: What do you use… weapons-wise?
Spence: Weapons. I’m a, I’m a weapons man.
Sam: Weapons man.
Spence: Yeah (chuckles).
Spence: They tend to settle the argument. So what you favor?
Sam: Oh, you know, it’s a tool box. I don’t care. You put the tools in for the job. That’s all.
Sam: You know, actually I favor the old 1911.
Spence: Forty-five. Old gun.
Sam: It’s served my country well… a long time.
It was a Walther P38 made up to resemble a Steyr Model of 1911.There’s an old cowboy movie I remember from a long time ago. Richard Boone, a.k.a. “paladin“ was one of the Cowboys and he carried a 1911. There was discussion in the movie about its capacity and how fast it fired and I remember at least one gun fight set by a river.
For the life of me, I can’t remember the name of the movie I can’t find it. Does anyone have any recollection of this or was it a bad dream?
As I searched again maybe it was “big Jake”(1971) with John Wayne, Richard Boone etc. the pistol was some kind of weird Hollywood mocked up fake 1911.
