Escape from Zahrain is a 1962 adventure movie directed by Ronald Neame. The story takes place in a fictional Middle East state of Zahrain. The rebel leader Sharif (Yul Brynner) is arrested but his supporters make a successful attack on the prison car that transports Sharif and several other convicts. Now a motley crew of the rebel leader, his young and devoted follower (Sal Mineo), an American adventurer (Jack Warden), a local nurse and a pair of criminals have to make a travel to the border in a hijacked medical car while police relentlessly pursues them.

The following weapons were used in the film Escape from Zahrain:

Submachine Guns

During the escape from the prison car Huston (Jack Warden) takes a Thompson M1928A1 with drum magazine from a slain guard. This SMG then passes from hands to hands, carried by Sharif (Yul Brynner), Ahmed (Sal Mineo) and Tahar (Anthony Caruso). Police also use Thompson SMGs.
