If... (1968)

If…. (1968) was the first film in director Lindsay Anderson’s “Mick Travis” trilogy (O Lucky Man!, Britannia Hospital). A savage black comedy about British society, the film starred Malcolm McDowell as Mick Travis, along with David Wood, Richard Warwick, Robert Swann, and Christine Noonan. Anderson filmed the movie in both color and black and white, for no other apparent reason than the director's whim. Public school students conduct a vicious war of retaliation against arbitrary authority.

The following firearms were used in the film If...:

Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I

Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk Is are used by the students serving in the public school's Combined Cadet Force and was used by the students, General Denson (Anthony Nicholls) and British soldiers during the shootout towards the end of the film. Mick Travis (Malcolm McDowell) and one of his friends used bayonet-fixed Lee-Enfield No. 4 rifles to shoot live .303 British rifle ammunition at the cadets and the teachers when they lined up for a meal while on a training exercise with the school's Combined Cadet Force. Mick also used his bayonet fixed No. 4 rifle to intimidate the school's vicar after Mick and his friends fired live ammunition at the cadets and teachers during the training exercise.
