Cry of a Prostitute (original title Quelli che contano, "Those who count") is a 1974 Italian crime movie directed by Andrea Bianchi. A hired gun Tony Aniante (Henry Silva) returns to his native town in Sicily after many years in America and finds it ripped by a feud of two mafia bosses. Working for both sides, Aniante leads them to mutual destruction. The story has many similarities to such well known movies as Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo and Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars.

The following weapons were used in the film Cry of a Prostitute (Quelli che contano):


Smith & Wesson Military & Police

Don Turi Scannapieco's (Mario Landi) personal firearm is a nickel-plated Smith & Wesson Military & Police revolver. After Don Turi is killed, his revolver is taken by Carmela who gives it to Zino (Alfredo Pea), Don Turi's grandson. Zino in turn passes the revolver to Tony Aniante (Henry Silva) who uses it in the climactic scene.

An M&P revolver is seen in a flashback scene of the murdering of Tony's parents. It seems to be a different movie prop as it has plain grips unlike Don Turi's revolver.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

In several scenes, Don Ricuzzo's henchmen carry Smith & Wesson Model 36 revolvers (some of them may be Riva Esterina Dobermanns).
