Port is a Soviet 1976 (filmed 1975) B&W war movie directed by Yuriy Chernyy. In Spring 1944 Soviet troops approached the German-occupied city of Odessa on Black Sea coast. The Soviet intelligence and underground workers take measures to prevent undermining of the Odessa port by retreating Germans.

The following weapons were used in the film Port:


Luger P08

German and Romanian officers carry Luger P08 pistols but holsters for P08 mostly appear to be flat and empty. Andrey Nikolaevich Kotelnikov (Boris Nikiforov) uses a Luger during the final operation in Odessa port.
