Operation Caviar (alternative title: It doesn't always have to be caviar) is a 1961 German-French adaptation of the novel of the same name by Johannes Mario Simmel. Thomas Lieven, a dutiful employee of a London bank, would have preferred to pursue his passion as a hobby cook at home, rather than bringing seemingly harmless bank documents to Berlin on behalf of his boss. When they arrived in Germany, the completely puzzled Thomas was forced to cooperate by the counterintelligence agency and the Gestapo and sent to Paris with a fake passport. In London, Secret Service agents are already waiting for the supposed French double agent.
The following weapons were used in the film Operation Caviar:
Vera (Eva Bartok) owns a Luger P08 which she gives to Thomas Lieven (O. W. Fischer).
A Dreyse Model 1907 is used by Chantal (Senta Berger) to threaten Thomas who manages to take it from her.
Mauser Pocket Pistol
Siméon (Jean Richard) is very briefly seen with a Mauser Pocket Pistol during the encounter with a German column.
Some German soldiers are armed with MP40s.
Frühwirth Model 1872
Most German soldiers can be seen wielding rare Austrian Gendarmerie-Repetiergewehr System Frühwirth M1872 Carbines instead of accurate Karabiner 98ks. These rifles have Mannlicher M1890 Carbine style barrels with the rear part of Kropatschek Rifles.
Carcano M91/38 Cavalry Carbine
A Carcano M91/38 Cavalry Carbine is held by one German soldier.
Vetterli Model 1870/87/15
Another German is seen with what appears to be a Vetterli Model 1870/87/15 rifle.
Several German soldiers can also be seen with unknown rifles.
