The Escape (La carapate)
This article currently has one or more unidentified weapons.
The Escape (original title La carapate) is a 1978 French crime comedy directed by Gérard Oury. Jean-Philippe Duroc (Pierre Richard), an attorney, visits his client Martial Gaulard (Victor Lanoux) in prison. Suddenly a prison riot erupts, Gaulard escapes, and the police is convinced that Duroc helped him, so now they both are wanted.
The following weapons were used in the film The Escape (La carapate):
During the prison riot one of the convicts fires a pistol taken from an incapacitated warden. The pistol is seen only through the thick smoke so it's hard to identify it. Its general shape resembles M1911-style pistol, especially Colt Commander as the pistol seems to have a shorter barrel and a ring hammer spur.
When Gaulard robs a bank, a bank cashier fires a revolver. It is seen only from the muzzle. The revolver appears to be 5-shot so it can be Smith & Wesson Model 36 or some similar compact revolver.
MAT-49 SMGs are carried by gendarmes in several scenes.
Double Barreled Shotgun
A double barreled shotgun is seen in a locker on Gustave's farm.
Most gendarmes are armed with MAS-36 and MAS-36/51 rifles. Some of them are fitted with Tromblon Mle F3 muzzle grenade launchers.
Berthier Mle 1916 Carbine
Berthier Mle 1916 carbines are also used by gendarmes.
During the prison riot a guard is seen with a rifle that appears to be a MAS-49/56.
Berthier Mle 1907-15 M34
Some gendarmes carry rifles with straight bolt handles that appear to be Berthier Mle 1907-15 M34.
Unidentified hunting rifle
During the scene on the farm a bolt action hunting rifle is used by Gustave (Claude Brosset).
OFX 37 Grenade
During the prison riot gendarmes use tear gas grenades. They appear to be the training version of the OF 37 hand grenade, the OFX 37, with a Mle 1935 fuze. However, the spoon of the fuze is atypical being straight rather than contoured to the body of the grenade, possibly indicating that it is a mock up.
Tromblon Mle F3 Smoke Grenade Launcher
Tromblon Mle F3 smoke grenade launchers are seen mounted on MAS-36 rifles.
Toy Luger pistol
Martial Gaulard (Victor Lanoux) uses two toy Lugers to commit the bank heist.
