This article currently has one or more unidentified weapons.
The Shortest Day (original title Il giorno più corto) is a 1963 Italian war comedy directed by Sergio Corbucci and depicting the adventures of two unlucky Sicilians during World War I.
The following weapons were used in the film The Shortest Day (Il giorno più corto):
Glisenti Model 1910
Italian officers carry Glisenti Model 1910 pistols. Glisenti pistols are also seen in hands of Austro-Hungarian officers. Both original Glisenti M1910 and later Brixia M1912 can be seen.
Luger P08 pistols are seen in hands of Austro-Hungarian officers. In one scene Franco (Franco Franchi) and Francesco (Ciccio Ingrassia) briefly hold Lugers.
In one scene a young Italian officer is trying to make self-inflicted wound with a revolver. The revolver appears to be not an Italian service Bodeo M1889 but rather some Colt-style model, maybe of Spanish origin.
In the opening scene on Sicily mafia boss Don Turi (Eduardo De Filippo) and his henchmen carry traditional Lupara shotguns.
Carcano M91 Rifle
Italian soldiers are armed with Carcano M91 rifles, often fitted with bayonets.
In one scene an Italian Bersagliere soldier holds a rifle that looks similar to Carcano but has different rear sight and another stock.
Schwarzlose Machine Gun
Italian troops use Schwarzlose Machine Guns machine guns (instead of correct Fiat-Revelli M1914s).
SIA Model 1918
A SIA Model 1918 machine gun is mounted on an aircraft.
