Original Theatrical Poster
Murder on Dante Street (Ubiystvo na ulitse Dante) is a 1956 Soviet drama film directed by Mikhail Romm. During WWII French actress Madeleine Thibault (Evgeniya Kozyreva) participates in the Resistance Movement while her only and dear son Charles (Mikhail Kozakov) becomes a ardent Nazi and collaborator. Their post-war meeting ends up with a tragedy.
The following weapons were used in the film Murder on Dante Street (Ubiystvo na ulitse Dante):
FN Model 1906
During the stage performance, Madeleine Thibault (Evgeniya Kozyreva) holds an FN Model 1906 or some other similar pocket pistol.

FN Model 1910
During the stage performance, set in 1943 in occupied Paris, Madeleine Thibault (Evgeniya Kozyreva) holds an FN Model 1910.
Instead of blank-loaded pocket pistol, commonly used in the performance, Madeleine draws an FN Model 1910.
She goes towards the theater box where high rank German officers watch the performance.
Charles Thibault (Mikhail Kozakov) holds a Beretta M1934 when he meets his mother after the war.
Charles draws the pistol when Madeleine tells him that she knows about his collaboration with occupants.

A German officer (Arkadi Shcherbakov), commanding the garrison in Madeleine's native village, holds a Luger P08 during the attempt to arrest a Resistance member in Madeleine's father Hippolyte Lantier's house. After the destroying of the German garrison in the village, Hippolyte Lantier (Nikolai Komissarov) takes the officer's pistol.

He holds the pistol during the search in Madeleine's room.
The pistol is seen on the table near Hippolyte Lantier's plate. In this scene Lantier demonstrates that despite being paraplegic, he still can use the gun but the pistol is seen in Lantier's hands too unclear to make a decent screenshot.
A German officer (Nikolay Gorlov) draws a Walther P38 in the scene in a cafe in the town of Ciboure.

The officer in cafe carries the P38 in holster. The holster itself seems to be a TT-33
He draws the pistol after Madeleine slaps him but Greene manages to hit the pistol from the officer's hand and send it in flight (the pistol is seen in midair, on the very top of the screenshot).
When Madeleine Thibault kills a high rank German officer during the performance, another officer in the theater box draws a Mauser C96 (obviously a strange choice for a visit to theater). A Mauser pistol is also seen on the table in the secret base of the Resistance.

The C96 of the Resistance commander is seen on the improvised table.
A pistol is briefly seen in hands of a French Resistance fighter. This is some full-size military model that bears resemblance with Steyr M1912 but it's hard to say for sure.
For comparison: Steyr-Hahn M1912 - 9x23mm Steyr

In the final scene Claude Junot (Oleg Golubitsky) holds an unidentified pistol. It may be the same FN Model 1910 that was earlier used by Madeleine Thibault but it's hard to say for sure.
For comparison: FN Model 1910 - .380 ACP
