Hoodlum (1997)

The following weapons were used in the film Hoodlum:



Colt Police Positive

Illinois Gordon (Chi McBride) gives his cousin Bumpy Johnson (Laurence Fishburne) a Colt Police Positive revolver, which he uses throughout the entire movie to take over Harlem. At one point, Bumpy's girlfriend Francine (Vanessa Williams) is forced to shoot assassin Albert Salke (Mike Starr) with the revolver.

Albert Salke (Mike Starr) and Jules Salke (Beau Starr) use a "suppressed" Colt Detective Special to kill the guard at Bumpy's building during their attempted hit, following the classic movie myth of having a suppressor work on a revolver.

Ithaca 37

Queen Stephanie's bodyguard, Tee-Ninchy (Eddie "Bo" Smith, Jr.) caries a sawed off Ithaca 37 as his weapon of choice. He carries it with him, (and nearly uses it) during the meeting between Queen Stephanie, and Dutch Schultz. He also uses it to kill several hitmen during the attempted hit on the Queen before being shot to death. When Bumpy and Whispers gain the upper hand during the shootout, Bumpy picks it up and uses it to (unrealistically) set a nearby truck ablaze. Before the hit, one of the Queen's guards can also be seen holding this weapon. The use of the Ithaca 37, while relatively close to the timeline, is still anachronistic, as it was introduced in 1937.

Remington 870

Bub Hewlett (Clarence Williams III) carries a sawed-off Remington 870 when Dutch's men raid the apartment at the end. He also uses one during the attempted hit on Queen Stephanie before tossing it away. This is anachronistic, as the Remington 870 was not introduced until 1951. Several other sawed-off 870 shotguns are used, some without their stocks.
