Follow That Dream is an American 1962 musical comedy directed by Gordon Douglas and starring Elvis Presley as Toby Kwimper. Kwimpers vagabond family, homesteading in Florida, come in conflict with mobsters who plan to set up gambling operation in the location.

The following weapons were used in the film Follow That Dream:


Smith & Wesson Military & Police

Bank guards (Red West and uncredited one) who take Toby Kwimper (Elvis Presley) for a robber carry Smith & Wesson Military & Police revolvers. Toby disarms one of the guards during this episode. During Toby's confrontation with mobsters, Carmine (Jack Kruschen) and hired gangsters from Detroit, Jack (Frank DeKova) and Pete (uncredited) are armed with same looking Smith & Wessons. Again, Toby gets gangster's revolver and uses it.

Note: see additional promotion images of Elvis, holding the Smith & Wesson, on talk page.
