White Darkness, The (Bílá tma)
Bílá tma (English: The White darkness) is a 1948 Czech black-and-white war drama directed by František Cáp. This film was the first to artistically depict the Slovak National Uprising of 1944. A young doctor, Pavel Kafka, (Július Pántik) and nurse Katka (Mária Prechovská) shelter with a group of wounded partisans in an underground hideout until they are liberated by the Soviet Army. The theme of promoting friendship with the Red Army (and thus the USSR) permeates the entire film. For example, the story instills in the viewer the feeling that the Russian partisan Dugin (Boris Andreyev), pictured as a handsome, kind-hearted Russian guy, never has a moral crisis and is always at the right time at the right place.
The following guns were used in the 1948 Czechoslovak film The White Darkness (Bílá tma):
Doctor Pavel Kafka (Július Pántik), Nikolaj Grigorjevič Nazarov (Martin Tapák) and also most German soldiers are seen in film with an MP40 submachine gun.
The partisans in the film are mostly armed with Soviet PPSh-41 submachine guns. They are seen with both 35 round stick magazines and 71 round drum magazines.
Some German soldiers are armed with Sturmgewehr 44 assault rifles.
