Bourne Identity, The (1988)
The Bourne Identity is a 1988 television film starring Richard Chamberlain as Jason Bourne. The film aired in two parts on television and was the first adaptation of Robert Ludlum novel published eight years earlier. A feature film adaptation of the novel starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne was released in 2002.
The following weapons were used in the TV film The Bourne Identity:
IMI Desert Eagle Mark I
One of Carlos's men uses a Desert Eagle to shoot Jason Bourne twice on a boat outside Marseilles. It is most likely the earliest Mark I model.
Dr. Geoffrey Washburn (Denholm Elliott) tosses an early Beretta 92 to Jason Bourne (Richard Chamberlain), asking him to disassemble it. Bourne does so professionally, although he is unable to recall why or how he is able to. Bourne later takes a Beretta 92 from D'Anjou (James Faulkner) in Paris.
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snubnose
The most commonly seen weapon in the film is a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snubnose that Bourne takes from a hitman (Wayne Michaels) he disarms in the Zurich bank elevator. He uses it throughout the film. One of the NYPD officers during the finale also has a Model 19 Snub. This is the same weapon that can be seen wielded by Bourne on the DVD cover. Bourne never gets more ammo for the gun, so it seemingly has unlimited ammo.
All of the Zurich assassins, including "Gold Glasses" (Wolf Kahler), Johann (Terry Richards), and Fritz Koenig (Peter Vaughan), use suppressed Walther PPK pistols. Gold Glasses (Wolf Kahler) fires it at Bourne in the bank in Zurich, somehow firing 17 shots from it. Bourne gets a hold of one after he is detained by Gold Glasses in Zurich, using it to stop Johann from raping Marie. Despite the suppressor, it sounds unsuppressed when Bourne fires it.
The blonde man, sent to kill Bourne in the Zurich boarding house, uses a Walther P5 with wood grips, which Bourne quickly disarms him of and carries in his waistband. Marie St. Jacques (Jaclyn Smith) later uses the same P5 to fire at Johann as he fights with Bourne near the river.
Star Model BM
Gillette uses a suppressed Star Model BM when he infiltrates the Treadstone 71 safehouse in New York with Koenig.
Smith & Wesson Model 15
Smith & Wesson Model 38 Bodyguard
Bourne uses a Smith & Wesson Model 38 Bodyguard to shoot at Carlos in Paris, killing two of his guards with it. Although it only can hold five rounds, Bourne ends up firing nine without reloading.
Carlos's guards in Paris use pistols when firing at Bourne outside the church.
Brigadier Gen. Alex Conklin (Shane Rimmer) carries a Walther P38 during the confrontation in the Paris cemetery, a strange choice for an American military general. Bourne later commandeers the weapon to kill Gillette after the latter shoots Abbott.
French Gen. Francois Villiers (Anthony Quayle) uses a CZ 83 to shoot his wife Angelique (Kate Howard), then threatens Bourne with it. Carlos (Yorgo Voyagis) uses one during his fight with Bourne in the Treadstone 71 safehouse in New York. One of the Treadstone operators also carries one.
Johann fires a MAC-10 at Bourne with two magazines taped together jungle-style, which Bourne takes from him after killing him and uses to kill Carlos.
The Blonde Man (Roger Tebb), one of the Zurich assassins, appears to be use a Ruger Mini-14 fitted with a Laser Devices laser sight to shoot at Bourne and Marie in the parking garage of the hotel in Zurich.
Walther WA 2000
One of Carlos's assassins holds a Walther WA 2000 when a messenger comes to see Carlos. Gillette (James Laurenson) later uses one in the cemetery to shoot Conklin and Abbott. The rifle resembles the one used by Matt Damon in the 2004 film The Bourne Supremacy, but that one was actually a custom build.
