The Seven-Ups is a 1973 Crime-Drama starring Roy Scheider as the head of a unique unit of the NYPD called the Seven-Ups (Named so because all the criminals they catch get seven years or more in prison). The film is notable as being the only film directed by Philip D'Antoni, producer of Bullitt and The French Connection. Because Scheider played a detective named Buddy in this film as well, many have confused this film as a continuation of The French Connection, which it is not.
The following weapons were used in the film The Seven-Ups:
Smith & Wesson Model 36
Buddy Manucci's (Roy Scheider) main weapon in the film is a 5 shot Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolver. In one scene, he unrealistically fires 8 shots from it. The grips appear to be the Herret Shooting Stars model. Herret was a semi-custom grip maker out of Twin Falls, Idaho for many decades and very popular with knowledgeable shooters.
