The Devil's Daffodil is a 1961 British-German movie directed by Ákos Ráthonyi. A serial killer targets prostitutes. His trademark: next to the bodies, he leaves a yellow daffodil. Jack Tarling, an airline security expert who helps Scotland Yard at work, knows that these flowers are also used to smuggle small amounts of drugs. However, his main suspect quickly turns out to be innocent, because he too becomes a victim of the 'daffodil killer'.

The following weapons were used in the film The Devil's Daffodil:


FN Model 1900

Jack Tarling's (Joachim Fuchsberger) personal firearm is an FN Model 1900 pistol.
