Miracle Mile is a 1988 thriller written and directed by Steve De Jarnatt and stars Anthony Edwards as a musician who, shortly after meeting the love of his life, randomly answers a ringing pay phone. Upon hearing that the government has launched a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the Soviet Union, he learns that there are now only 70 minutes before the Soviet missles arrive to destroy Los Angeles. The majority of the film occurs in real time and takes place on the "Miracle Mile" section of Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The following weapons were used in the film Miracle Mile:
Fred the Cook (Robert DoQui) threatens Harry Washello (Anthony Edwards) with a snub-nosed Colt Python when the latter tells him and others about the impending nuclear strike. Harry later takes it and uses it for the rest of the movie, on one occasion, giving it to Julie (Mare Winningham). LAPD officers that stop Harry and Wilson (Mykelti Williamson) at a gas station use full size Pythons. When Wilson drenches one of the officers (Cynthia Phillips) with gasoline, she tries to shoot him, but the shot sets her on fire.
