Teheran 43 is a 1981 USSR-France-Switzerland film by Aleksandr Alov and Vladimir Naumov. It was distributed in Russian under the title Tegeran-43, in English as Teheran 43: Spy Ring and Assassination Attempt (the title of the TV version), in French as Téhéran 43, nid d'espions. The story takes place in Teheran during the Teheran Conference of 1943 when German agents planned to assassinate the Big Three - Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt - and 37 years later in Paris where several heroes and antiheroes meet again.
The following weapons are seen in the movie Teheran 43:
Nagant M1895 short-barreled revolver
One of the German agents (Georges Géret) uses a short Nagant M1895 revolver hidden inside a camera while training for the assassination attempt in 1943. This is a custom version with a very short barrel (shorter than the "standard" short Nagant). Snub nose Nagant is also used by Max Richard (Armen Dzhigarkhanyan) during the final scene in Paris in 1980.

German agents in Teheran use Walther P38 pistols. All of these pistols are nickel-plated, so it is likely that a single P38 was used in the movie. A P38 is also carried by Max Richard (Armen Dzhigarkhanyan) during the final scene in Paris in 1980.
