|Elmer J. Stuyvesant Jr.
Doughboys is a 1930 comedy movie directed by Edward Sedgwick. The young privileged Elmer is looking for a job in an employment office in order to impress his beloved. Unfortunately, the supposed job center is an army recruiting office. Before he knows it, Elmer is in uniform and under the command of the choleric Sergeant Brophy.
The following weapons were used in the film Doughboys:
Captain Scott (Frank Mayo) Lieutenant Randolph (William Steele), and Sergeant Brophy (Edward Brophy) have Colt M1911 pistols as their duty sidearms. Elmer J. Stuyvesant Jr. (Buster Keaton) carries a holstered Colt.
