Five Golden Dragons (German title Die Pagode zum fünften Schrecken ("The Pagoda to the Fifth Terror")) is a 1967 British-German adventure movie directed by Jeremy Summers. The plot uses storylines of Edgar Wallace's short stories about Commissioner Sanders. An American playboy Bob Mitchell (Bob Cummings) visits Hong Kong and finds himself caught up in the middle of the activities of the international criminal syndicate The Five Golden Dragons.

The following weapons were used in the film Five Golden Dragons:


Rossi M27

Gert (Klaus Kinski), the enforcer of the Golden Dragons, holds a Smith & Wesson Model 36-style revolver when he interrogates kidnapped Ah Sing and Ingrid. His revolver has slightly different front sight and the front of the frame that allow to identify the gun as Rossi M27 "Pioneer".

Smith & Wesson Model 36 - .38 Special. Rossi M27 is very similar except for more angular front sight, slightly different shape of the front of the frame and shorter ejector rod.

Single Action Army

Hong Kong police officers carry Single Action Army revolvers (too antique handguns for 1960s). The holsters of British pattern for Webley .455 Mk VI revolvers are used.

Unidentified Smith & Wesson revolver

A miniature wooden pagoda with five revolvers mounted inside is used by the Golden Dragons as a kind of security system. The revolvers are seen partially, all five seems to be the same model. Judging by the supported ejector rod, these are Smith & Wesson models.

One of the Golden Dragons opens the pagoda with his personal key. The revolvers are seen inside; the muzzle of one of the guns is seen at the left.

Mondial Model 1900

When Margret (Maria Perschy) sneaks into Mitchell's hotel suite, she is armed with a nickel plated pocket pistol that turns out to be a starter pistol of Italian or German manufacture. Mondial Model 1900 seems to be a decent guess.

Unidentified pistol

Peterson's bodyguard Max (uncredited) holds an unidentified pistol. It looks similar to Smith & Wesson 39 but no slide-mounted safety switch and external extractor can be seen on this gun.

For comparison: Smith & Wesson 39 - 9x19mm

Several naval ships are seen in the Hong Kong Bay.

The ship at the far left (red arrow) is a dock landing ship, supposedly Ashland class. A destroyer of unclear class is seen in center (blue arrow).
Two destroyers are seen near the pier. One of them (red arrow) is a Daring class (two twin Mk VI 4.5 inch gun mountings are seen on the bow and one - on the stern); another one (blue arrow) is a County class guided missile destroyer, identified by the typical large Type 901 radar post.
