Over Tissa (Nad Tissoy) is a 1958 Soviet adventure movie directed by Dmitriy Vasilyev and based on the novel by Aleksandr Avdeyenko. In 1951 foreign agent Clark (Valentin Zubkov) infiltrates USSR, posing himself as retired Soviet Army Starshina (Sgt. Maj.) Ivan Belogray; real Belogray was murdered by the agent's accomplice. Under the fake personality, Clark settles in a village in Transcarpathian region and plans to destroy the strategic railway bridge over river Tissa (currently Tisza). But Border Guard Andrey Smolyarchuk (Afanasi Kochetkov) manages to uncover the real identity of the agent.

The following weapons were used in the film Over Tissa (Nad Tissoy):

Walther P38

Clark (Valentin Zubkov) uses a Walther P38 in several scenes. When he ambushes Starshina Smolyarchuk, the P38 switches to Luger P08 (see below) and then back to Walther.
