The Olsen Gang in a Fix (Olsen-banden på spanden) was a 1969 gangster comedy movie of the Danish Olsen Gang series. As for the comic intent of the series, guns were used in the movie mostly for comic effects, i.e. to represent the ruthlessness or madness of certain characters.

The following guns were used in the film Olsen Gang in a Fix:


Luger Water Pistol

In the teaser of the movie, main character Egon Olsen (Ove Sprogøe) is attempting a bank robbery by means of threatening the personnel with a Luger P08-like water pistol.

Submachine Guns

Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II

Various submachine guns can be seen as the police inspects the National Bank, which just has been robbed by Mozerella's men. At least two of them carry Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II submachine guns. As his current henchmen fail to gain the stolen crown jewels back, Mozerella recruits some special "Bavarian" mobsters. Some of them also appear to be carrying Haenel-Schmeissers towards the hideout of the Olsen gang.

Thompson M1928

Thompson M1928s are used by Mozerella's trenchcoat thugs. Stereotypically, they are also carried inside violin cases. They are used throughout the movie on the occasions of intimidating pub owner Tjener Hansen (Paul Hagen) and during a chase with the Olsen gang and the police.

As the police assumes the Olsen gang to be highly dangerous, Mortensen dons body armor and a helmet and arms himself with a Husqvarna M/1944. He later fires the gun in Hansen's pub again, leading to the third obstruction of the pub's interior.
