The Green Archer is a 1961 German movie directed by Jürgen Roland and the fifth Edgar Wallace film of the postwar period based on the 1923 novel of the same name. The American millionaire Abel Bellamy moves into his castle, Garre Castle near London, although he knows that the spirit of a green archer is up to mischief. It does not take long for the first casualties to be mourned. Inspector Featherstone of Scotland Yard can be smuggled into the property as a caretaker so that he can investigate undisturbed. But Bellamy's pretty niece Valerie is also investigated because she has a bad suspicion.

The following weapons were used in the film The Green Archer:


NHM Model 9

NHM Model 9 gas revolvers are used by Abel Bellamy (Gert Fröbe) and Scotland Yard Police Officers like Sergeant Higgins (Wolfgang Völz) and Sergeant Bannister (Charles Palent).
