So Darling So Deadly (original title Kommissar X - In den Klauen des goldenen Drachen ("Commissioner X - In the Claws of the Golden Dragon")) is a 1966 German-Italian-Austrian Eurospy film directed by Gianfranco Parolini (credited as Frank Kramer). It is the third in Kommissar X franchise, series of seven films about the adventures of private investigator Jo Louis Walker (Tony Kendall), also known as "Commissioner X", and his friend, New York police captain Tom Rowland (Brad Harris). This time the duo has a mission in Singapore where Professor Akron, the inventor of a new powerful laser, is assaulted by a crime ring under the leadership of myserious Golden Dragon.

The following weapons were used in the film So Darling So Deadly:


Arminius HW-1

Arminius HW-1 blank firing revolvers are again widely used in the movie. They are seen in hands of Jo Walker (Tony Kendall) and Capt. Tom Rowland (Brad Harris), and also of various criminals. In the final scene Shabana (Luisa Rivelli) uses Walker's revolver.

Unidentified revolver

In one scene an Asian hitman uses a revolver in an attempt to kill Tom Rowland. This revolver resembles a top-break Webley, especially a Webley .38 Mk IV (a service sidearm of Singapore Police at that time) but it completely lacks the front sight. Possibly this detail was simply broken.

FN Model 1900

An FN Model 1900 is seen in hands of a Singapore police inspector in one scene. In the final scene Jonathan Taylor (Carlo Tamberlani) holds an FN Model 1900.
