Coast of Skeletons
Coast of Skeletons is a 1965 (filmed 1964) British-South African adventure movie directed by Robert Lynn, a sequel of 1963 film Death Drums Along the River. The movie features the main character of Edgar Wallace's 1911 novel "Sanders of the River" and the 1935 film of the same title by Zoltan Korda, although the plot is totally different. Harry Sanders (Richard Todd), British police Commissioner in West Africa, retires from service after the African colony gets independence. He is hired by the insurance company to investigate the diamond operations on the Coast of Skeletons in the South West Africa (modern-day Namibia), carried out by the shady tycoon A. J. Magnus (Dale Robertson). During the voyage, Sanders meets the skipper of Magnus' ship Janny Von Koltze (Heinz Drache), former German U-boat officer who seems to have his own goals in the explorations on the offshore waters.
The following weapons were used in the film Coast of Skeletons:
Smith & Wesson Military & Police
Harry Sanders (Richard Todd) carries a Smith & Wesson Military & Police revolver with 4" barrel. The revolver is fitted with a lanyard ring, but it's not a Smith & Wesson Victory Model as a medallion is seen on the grips that is absend on Victory revolvers.
Single Action Army
Piet Van Houten (Dietmar Schönherr) carries a bright nickel plated Single Action Army "Artillery" Model revolver with smooth wood grips. The revolver may be one of the German replicas produced by Sauer, Reck and other manufacturers, often chambered in .22 caliber.
Due to a continuity error, Carlo Seton's (George Leech) Luger P08 switches to a Colt revolver during the final shootout. The exact model is unclear; Colt Official Police or Colt Police Positive seem to be good guesses.
Carlo Seton (George Leech) holds a Luger P08 when he confronts Janny Von Koltze (Heinz Drache).
Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III
In the opening scene two native police constables under Sanders' command are armed with Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III rifles.
