Anyone know what guns Edward Fox used in Force 10 from Navarone, and also as Allen Faulkner in The Wild Geese II? MoviePropMaster2008 07:12, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

He was in A Bridge Too Far, as well, wasn't he? Or was that one of the other Fox brothers? --funkychinaman 13:07, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
You know, IMDB (not us, but IMDB) is a wonderful tool to use so that you can check LOL ;) Edward Fox played Lt. Gen. Brian G. Horrocks, head of the armored XXX Corp (the Grenadier Guards aka the British Tank column if memory serves me, and commander of Michael Caine's character). If he had a sidearm (which I am not sure he did EVER in the film since he rarely left the command offices except at the end) it was never pulled from it's holster. I just remember his classic line "It was AFTER Nimegen" when the generals are trying to figure out how they screwed up so badly at the end of the movie.MoviePropMaster2008 18:12, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
I thought he spent more time in the field, because I remember him wearing this cool leather vest. (That was him, right?) And I think he was the one explaining the jeeps with the Vickers K guns. --funkychinaman 19:05, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Edward Fox' s weaponry

I have discussed this on other pages, notably The Wild Geese's discussion page.

In Wild Geese II (not The Wild Geese II) Fox's character Alex Faulkner uses only two weapons, a Safari Arms .45 pistol with scope, suppressor and shoulder stock and an Uzi. Although there is a scene were he lays out numerous weapons on a bed for Hadad (Scott Glenn) to chose.

In A Bridge Too Far Fox plays a Armoured Corps commander and therefore is never seen armed with anything more than a billiard cue - used as a pointer when describing the operation on a large wall mounted map.

In Force 10 from Navarone Fox doesn't use any gun or knife, being an explosives expert he carries a suitcase jam-packed with every thing from a rubber cobra to explosive dog sh*t. In the novel his character is armed with a silenced Luger but unless these scenes were cut i don't think it made the final film.
