Magnificent Seven, The (1960)
The Magnificent Seven is the classic 1960 Western directed by John Sturges that was in turn based upon Akira Kurosawa's classic samurai film Seven Samurai. The film follows seven gunfighters hired by citizens of a Mexican town for protection from a group of bandits who have been terrorizing them. The Magnificent Seven would spawn three sequels, a CBS television series that premiered in 1998 and Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn would reunite for director Sturges in 1963's The Great Escape. A feature film remake directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt is released in September of 2016.

The Seven, which includes Chris Adams (Yul Brynner), Vin (Steve McQueen), Bernardo O'Reilly (Charles Bronson), Lee (Robert Vaughn), Harry Luck (Brad Dexter), Britt (James Coburn) and Chico (Horst Buchholz) all use various models of the Single Action Army revolvers in the film.
The Artillery model is the most prevalent handgun used in the film. Both Chris (Yul Brynner) and Vin (Steve McQueen) are seen carrying Artillery models in addition to their other revolvers. Britt (James Coburn) uses one to shoot a man off a horse from an impossible distance, Chico says: That's the greatest shot I've ever seen! to which Britt replies The worst; I was aiming for the horse.
Vin (Steve McQueen) also carries a Cavalry model as his sidearm.
Calvera (Eli Wallach) also a Quickdraw model in the film, most notably to shoot a Farmer charging him and during the two shootouts.
