Manchurian Candidate, The (1962)
The Manchurian Candidate is the 1962 political thriller that was an adaptation of the 1959 novel by Richard Condon. The film was directed by John Frankenheimer and the cast included Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey and James Gregory. A 2004 remake starred Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber and was directed by Jonathan Demme.
The following weapons were used in the film The Manchurian Candidate:
A US Army honor guard is seen carrying the M1 Garand when Raymond Shaw is greeted back in the States.
Chinese guards in the back of the room during the brainwashing are clearly seen holding PPSh-41 submachine guns.
Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra) hands Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) a Walther P38 during the brainwashing scene. While it is more likely an American officer in the Korean War would carry an M1911A1, it's possible that the gun was simply one provided by the Chinese or a personal sidearm that Captain Marco picked up in World War II.
Colt Official Police
Arisaka Type 2 Paratrooper rifle
Though described by Mrs. Iselin (Angela Lansbury) as a "a two-piece Soviet Army sniper's rifle" the weapon Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) assembling is in reality a Japanese Arisaka Type 99 Type 2 Paratrooper rifle mounted with a low power rifle scope.
