Secret Agent (Podvig razvedchika, literally "The Scout's Exploit"; also known as Secret Mission and Secrets of Counter-Espionage) is a Soviet 1947 B&W war drama directed by Boris Barnet. In 1943 Soviet intelligence officer Aleksey Fedotov (Pavel Kadochnikov) operates in Nazi occupied town of Vinnytsa, impersonating German Heinrich Eckert. His task is to obtain the secret correspondence of General Kuhn.

Podvig razvedchika is known to originate the spy genre in Soviet cinema.

The following weapons were used in the film Secret Agent (Podvig razvedchika):


Mauser M1914

During the scene with Grigory Leshchuk (Amvrosi Buchma), Fedotov, posing as Eckert, draws a Mauser Pocket Pistol, most likely M1914.

Unidentified pistol

In one scene Stübing (Pyotr Arzhanov) very briefly holds a pistol. It generally resembles TT-33 but isn't seen clear enough to confirm this guess.
