Point Blank (1967)
Point Blank is a 1967 crime thriller starring Lee Marvin as Walker, a thief who finds himself betrayed and left for dead by his partner in crime and his wife after a successful heist. Upon his recovery, he travels to Los Angeles in order to exact revenge. This film was an adaptation of the novel The Hunter which was written by Donald E. Westlake under the pseudonum of Richard Stark. The main character of the novel would also be used as the basis for several subsequent feature film adaptations, including 1992's Full Contact,1999's Payback, and 2013's Parker. The film's title also loosely inspired the title of the 1997 action/comedy Grosse Pointe Blank.
Colt Detective Special
Walker's partner in crime Mal Reese (John Vernon) shoots Walker on Alcatraz Island with a Colt Detective Special. One of Mal's bodyguards also carries a Detective Special, which Walker disposes of.
Smith & Wesson Model 29
Walker (Lee Marvin) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 29 with a 4" barrel throughout the film. On the DVD commentary the director John Boorman said Marvin faked the recoil when firing the .44 Magnum blanks at Lynne's bed although, when later firing live ammunition at Alcatraz, there was no recoil, prompting Marvin to tell Boorman that "Fiction overtakes reality".
One of Mal Reese's bodyguards carries a small pistol that appears to be a Walther PPK. Walker disposes of it.
Winchester Model 70
The assassin (James B. Sikking) hired by Carter uses a bolt-action sniper rifle resembling a Winchester Model 70 with a shortened barrel during the storm drain rendezvous.
Smith & Wesson Model 10 Snubnose
John Stegman (Michael Strong) drops a Smith & Wesson Model 10 Snubnose when he is shot at the storm drain.
