Point Blank (1967)

Point Blank is a 1967 crime thriller starring Lee Marvin as Walker, a thief who finds himself betrayed and left for dead by his partner in crime and his wife after a successful heist. Upon his recovery, he travels to Los Angeles in order to exact revenge. This film was an adaptation of the novel The Hunter which was written by Donald E. Westlake under the pseudonum of Richard Stark. The main character of the novel would also be used as the basis for several subsequent feature film adaptations, including 1992's Full Contact,1999's Payback, and 2013's Parker. The film's title also loosely inspired the title of the 1997 action/comedy Grosse Pointe Blank.

Smith & Wesson Model 29

Walker (Lee Marvin) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 29 with a 4" barrel throughout the film. On the DVD commentary the director John Boorman said Marvin faked the recoil when firing the .44 Magnum blanks at Lynne's bed although, when later firing live ammunition at Alcatraz, there was no recoil, prompting Marvin to tell Boorman that "Fiction overtakes reality".
