The following weapons were used in the film The Late Show:


Colt Official Police

Ira Wells (Art Carney) owns, and uses a Colt Official Police, which is appropriate considering that he is supposed to have been a private investigator since 1946. At one point Lamar (John Considine) takes it, by force, from Ira, who gets it back.
