Gaichi (Russian: Гайчи) is the 1938 Soviet adventure movie.

Note 1: Due the whatever reason, the imdb page of this movie create from the licensed German version, which result the wrong Latin spelling of actors and characters (most notably the main character, who turned from Gaichi to Gaitschi) and shorter movie duration (the original Soviet version runs 65 minutes against 60 minutes, depicted by IMDB).

Note 2: The original film is a severely damaged, so, restored, but watermarked version is used.

The following weapons were used in the film Gaichi:
