The Lost City (2005)

The Lost City is a 2005 historical drama starring, produced, and directed by Andy Garcia about a Cuban family torn apart by the Cuban revolution. The film also stars Bill Murray, Nestor Carbonell, Enrique Murciano, Inés Sastre, with a small role by Dustin Hoffman. Many of the actors, like Garcia, Carbonell, Murciano, Steven Bauer, Tomás Milián, Julio Oscar Mechoso, Tony Plana and Victor Rivers were either born in Cuba or are of Cuban descent. Obviously, filming on location in Havana was out of the question, so filming was done in Santa Domingo in the Dominican Republic.


The following weapons were used in the film The Lost City:


Smith & Wesson Model 10

Luis Fellove (Nestor Carbonell) uses a Smith & Wesson Model 10 during his attack on the presidential palace. He also has one afterwards when he's in hiding. The two assassins in the beginning (Danny Pino and Richard Marquez) also use Smith & Wesson Model 10s when they gun down Lieutenant Dario.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

Fico carries a Smith & Wesson Model 36 as well. Colonel Candela describes it as a ".32 caliber Smith & Wesson," which would suggest a snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 30, but he was never able to get a close look, and a closer examination would reveal that it only has five shots.
