Lavender Hill Mob, The
The Lavender Hill Mob is a 1951 British B&W crime comedy directed by Charles Crichton and starring Alec Guinness and Stanley Holloway. Henry Holland (Guinness) is a London bank clerk in charge of gold bullion deliveries. For years he makes a plan to steal a load of bullion but he doesn't know how to smuggle the loot abroad. One day Holland meets Alfred Pendlebury (Holloway), an owner of a foundry that makes souvenirs that are sold in France. This is the way to deliver the stolen gold. Holland and Pendlebury hire two seasoned thieves and successfully complete the plan. But as usual, something goes wrong...
The following weapons were used in the film The Lavender Hill Mob:
When Henry Holland (Alec Guinness) and Alfred Pendlebury (Stanley Holloway) make a bait for thieves whom they plan to hire for the case, they arm themselves with top-break revolvers of unclear model, fitted with cylinder barrel shrouds. Possibly these are not live weapons but some kind of blank-firing guns. Some Italian starter revolvers have similar top-break construction and thin barrels that can be covered with thick shrouds.
Dreyse Model 1907
The security guard in the gold-transporting van carries a Dreyse Model 1907 pistol. He gives his gun to Henry Holland when the latter is left alone in the back of the van.
The driver of the van carries an unidentified pistol. The general appearance resembles FN Model 1910 or some similar gun but it's too vague guess.
Tower Percussion Pistol
A Tower Percussion Pistol is seen among other exhibits on the exhibition of police history at Hendon Police College.
