I Dutifully Report (Poslusne hlasim) is a 1958 Czechoslovak comedy movie, a screen adaptation of the famous Czech novel by Jaroslav Hasek, directed by Karel Stekly and starring Rudolf Hrusínský. The movie is based on the second, third and fourth parts, following The Good Soldier Schweik (Dobrý voják Švejk), released in 1957.
The following weapons were used in the film I Dutifully Report (Poslušně hlásím):
Some sidearms in officers' holsters appear to be Rast-Gasser M1898 revolvers.
