This article currently has one or more unidentified weapons.
The Mask of the Gorilla (original title Le Gorille vous salue bien ("The Gorilla salute you")) is a 1958 French spy movie directed by Bernard Borderie and starring Lino Ventura as Géo Paquet aka "The Gorilla", an agent of DST (French counterespionage agency) who pretends to be a criminal in order to infiltrate a spy ring. The film was followed by two sequels, Gorilla's Waltz (La valse du gorille) (1959) and The Deadly Decoy (Le gorille a mordu l'archevêque) (1962) with Roger Hanin in the role of "The Gorilla".
The following weapons were used in the film The Mask of the Gorilla (Le Gorille vous salue bien):
An FN P-35, the first version of Browning Hi-Power, is "The Gorilla"'s (Lino Ventura) personal firearm.
Walther P38 pistols are seen in hands of several characters, including Casa (Robert Manuel), a petty criminal and "The Gorilla"'s old friend, and DST agent Berthier (Yves Barsacq).
FN Model 1922
An FN Model 1922 is seen in hands of Veslot's henchman Valério (Jean-Marie Rivière).
William Veslot (Pierre Dux) draws an M1911A1 in one scene.
Colt Model 1903
Pistols that appear to be Colt Model 1903 are seen in hands of crime boss Léon (Jean-Roger Caussimon) and Combinat (Robert Berri).
Popaul (François Darbon), another one of Veslot's henchmen, carries a pistol in one scene. It is seen briefly and unclear but the general shape allows to make a guess that it's a Frommer Stop.
In one scene Chaboute (Marie Sabouret) fires a revolver. It is seen very briefly and only from the barrel.
An M1928 Thompson is used by Valério (Jean-Marie Rivière).
In one scene one of Léon's henchmen is armed with an MP40. In the final scene an MP40 is used by the hitman (Guy Mairesse).
