Private Läppli is a 1960 Swiss comedy movie directed by Alfred Rasser and Charles-Ferdinand Vaucher. General mobilization in 1939: The clumsy food salesman Theophil Läppli is mistakenly imprisoned for anti-military speeches. Therefore, he arrives late at the mobilization site, where he is immediately ordered to see a psychiatrist because of the feather blanket he brought along and his loose mouth. The perplexed doctors promote the patriotically inclined, extremely loquacious, and obviously slightly crazy fusilier to officer cleaning in an auxiliary service company. And so Läppli ends up in Schaffhausen, where he is assigned to Oberleutnant Clermont.

The following weapons were used in the film Private Läppli:

Schmidt-Rubin Model 1911
