1492: Conquest of Paradise
1492: Conquest of Paradise is the 1992 historical drama directed by Ridley Scott that stars Gérard Depardieu as Christopher Columbus. The cast included Sigourney Weaver and Armand Assante. The film was released during the 500th anniversary of the explorer's discovery of the North American continent and was one of two feature films released in that year that featured Columbus.
The following weapons were used in the film 1492: Conquest of Paradise:
16th Century Matchlock Musket
Christopher Columbus (Gérard Depardieu) and his men are ambushed by the men of Adrian de Moxica (Michael Wincott) who are armed with Matchlock Muskets. Columbus then has his men return fire with their Matchlocks. This is anachronistic as the muskets used in the film are of the later 16th century type and at the time of these events (1499) only more primitive arquebuses and firearms would have been available.
