In the 1993 film In The Line of Fire, Booth (John Malkovich) is seen constructing this two shot, reloadable clandestine pistol. The weapon is used to great effect several times throughout the film. The weapon appears to use .38 Short Colt ammunition, or possibly a variation of .38 S&W with unbelted cartridge cases. While a version of this "Composite Pistol" was also seen used by Russell Crowe in the movie No Way Back (1995), the original blank-firing prop was deactivated by cutting it into three pieces after the filming of In The Line of Fire.
