Death Rage (Con la rabbia agli occhi, also released in English as Anger in His Eyes) is a 1976 Italian crime thriller directed by Antonio Margheriti (as Anthony M. Dawson) and starring Yul Brynner as mafia hitman Peter Marciani. The conflict between the New York mafia and the camorra leads to a death of an American Mafioso in Naples, and Marciani receives the task to kill the camorra boss Gennaro Gallo (Giancarlo Sbragia). Although the hitman has already retired, he agrees to take the mission after he is told that it was Gallo who in the past was responcible for the murder of Peter's younger brother. Arriving from New York in Naples, Marciani gets acquainted with Angelo (Massimo Ranieri), a very determined young rascal who offers him his support.

The movie is the final screen appearance of Yul Brynner.

The following weapons were used in the film Death Rage (Con la rabbia agli occhi):


Beretta M1951

Beretta M1951 pistols are most often used in the movie, seen in hands of Peter Marciani (Yul Brynner), the police commissioner (Martin Balsam) and his subordinates, Gallo's henchmen Pasquale (Loris Bazzocchi) and several unnamed ones (including Tommaso Palladino), and American Mafioso Sal Leonardi (uncredited) and his bodyguard (Domenico Di Costanzo).

Smith & Wesson Military & Police

Revolvers are used by several of Gallo's henchmen in various scenes. They are mostly are seen unclear but what is seen allows to guess that this is Smith & Wesson Military & Police (possibly the same prop is reused throughout the movie).

Snub nose revolver

During the shootout with police, one of Gallo's henchmen holds a snub nose revolver that is seen very unclear due to fast motion.


In the final scene, Angelo (Massimo Ranieri) fires a gun from his pocket. Only the muzzle is seen but judging by the size and shape the gun seems to be a snub nose revolver rather than a pistol.


Submachine Guns

Beretta Submachine Gun

In several scenes the police personnel carry submachine guns of Beretta Model 38 family. The exact model (or models) is unclear as the guns are seen too briefly or in darkness. The possible guesses are MAB 38/42, MAB 38/44, MAB 38/49 or MAB 38/57.

For reference: Beretta Model 38/44 - 9x19mm

Bolt Action Sniper Rifle

Peter Marciani (Yul Brynner) trains Angelo (Massimo Ranieri) to shoot a bolt action sniper rifle that is later used for the assassination of Gennaro Gallo. The exact model of the rifle is unidentified. The gun has an uncommon foregrip or palm rest below the handguard but this detail isn't used by the shooters who hold the rifle in a standard way. A rifle with same kind of foregrip, possibly the same model (except for the lack of the sniper scope) is seen in Italian film Night of the Sharks.

M1 Carbine Style Sniper Rifle

In a flashback scene, Peter Marciani (Yul Brynner) kills one of his targets, using a sniper rifle that looks similar to M1 Carbine. It may be a common M1 or one of its .22 commercial versions, like Erma Werke Model E M1.

Marciani fires from the window. The general outline of the rifle resemble M1 Carbine.

Unidentified rifles

In another flashback scene, Peter Marciani (Yul Brynner) uses a suppressed sniper rifle that is seen only partially.

The handguard and the barrel with the sound suppressor are seen. The shadow shows the outlines of the gun. The shadow of the sniper scope is partially covered by the barrel that makes it look strange.

Air Rifle

Angelo (Massimo Ranieri) earns money at the racetrack by adjusting the results of races with an Air Rifle, from which he covertly shoots at horses against whom he bets. After Angelo drops this activities, his friend Peppiniello (Luigi Bonos) makes an attempt to do the same feat but is caught on the spot and arrested. The rifle is supposed to be some German Diana model, judging by the typical sights and the trigger guard.
