When a Woman Meddles (Quand la femme s'en mêle, also released in English as Send a Woman When the Devil Fails) is a 1957 French-Italian-West German crime movie directed by Yves Allégret and based on the novel "Sans attendre Godot" by Jean Amila. The movie is film debut for Alain Delon and Bruno Cremer.

The following weapons were used in the film When a Woman Meddles (Quand la femme s'en mêle):

Colt Model 1903/1908

A Colt Model 1903/1908 is a personal handgun of young hitman Jo (Alain Delon). In several scenes the pistol falls in hands of Maine (Edwige Feuillère) and Félix Seguin (Bernard Blier). Henri Godot (Jean Servais) also uses a Colt 1903.

Félix aims at Auguste Coudert de la Taillerie (Jean Debucourt). In next moment the pistol switches to an FN Model 1910 (see below).

FN Model 1910

Godot's henchman Fred (Jean Lefebvre) is armed with an FN Model 1910. Due to a continuity error, Félix Seguin's (Bernard Blier) Colt M1903 switches to an FN M1910 that is then used by Maine (Edwige Feuillère).

Compact M1911-style pistol

Kuntz (Jean-Marie Serreau) shoots himself with a compact M1911-style pistol. Same looking pistol (probably same gun reused) is confiscated by Fred (Jean Lefebvre) from Bobby's henchman Le Vilain (Alain Nobis).

For comparison: Star Model DK - .380 ACP, an example of compact 1911-style pistol, available in 1950s.
A compact 1911 in Kuntz's dead hand. The pistol bears resemblance with compact Star Model D family but it's hard to say if this gun has external extractor, typical for Star pistols.
