Dirty Money, or Un Flic (Eng.: A Cop) is a 1972 French neo-noir film starring Alain Delon, Richard Crenna and Catherine Deneuve, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville (Le Samouraï, Army of Shadows). It was the final film for director Melville, who died of a heart attack less than a year after it was released. Alain Delon was no stranger to Melville's films, but American actors Richard Crenna and Michael Conrad starred as well, with all of their French dialogue dubbed in.
The following weapons were used in the film Dirty Money:
Simon (Richard Crenna) uses an original M1911 during the opening bank robbery. Louis Costa (Michael Conrad) has one on him when he is ambushed at the restaurant. Commissaire Edouard Coleman (Alain Delon) is later seen examining and unloading it.
