The Artist is a 2011 Franco-Belgian dramedy directed by Michel Hazanavicius (OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies) starring Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, with John Goodman and James Cromwell. It was a film award juggernaut in 2011, scoring numerous wins at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs, the César Awards and the Academy Awards. It was the first mostly silent film to win the Oscar for Best Picture since the first winner for Best Picture (1927's Wings), and the first entirely black and white film to win Best Picture since 1960's The Apartment.
The following weapons were used in the film The Artist:
M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle
A guard is seen firing a M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle in George Valentin's film A Russian Affair. This is an anachronism, as A Russian Affair is made in 1927 and the M1918A2 isn't developed until 1938.
Winchester Model 70
Smith & Wesson Schofield
The explorer/hunter played by George Valentin in Tears of Love also has what appears to be a Smith & Wesson Schofield on his belt. It never leaves the holster.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
Valentin contemplates suicide with a snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 10.
