Funeral in Berlin
Funeral in Berlin is the 1966 sequel to 1965's The Ipcress File. The film was directed by Guy Hamilton and produced by Harry Saltzman, both veterans of the James Bond film series. Michael Caine returns as Harry Palmer. This was the second of three consecutive Harry Palmer films, which concluded with 1967's Billion Dollar Brain (Caine would return for two more television films that were not adapted from the Len Deighton novels).
The following weapons were used in the film Funeral in Berlin:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Korth Blank Firing Revolver
Harry Palmer (Michael Caine) uses a Korth blank firing revolver in the exterior scenes in Berlin. See the discussion page for extra details.
Colt Detective Special
In a continuity error, Harry’s revolver becomes a Colt Detective Special when he checks it in his hotel room. This could be due to the interior scenes being filmed in Britain, where the German props were unavailable.
One of Kreutzman’s henchmen uses a Frommer Stop.
One of the Israeli agents is armed with a Mauser HSc.
Several characters use the Walther PP during the film.
One on the Israeli agents is seen briefly carrying an automatic pistol of some form. The scene is very quick so identification is tricky.
Sterling Mk. IV
Several characters use the Sterling Mk. IV.
Sten Mk II
A Sten Mk II is used by the Israeli agent and is briefly used by an East German border guard. This is a Mk II as it has a metal T-stock and no pistol grip, but is fitted with a Mk V sight (see discussion for extra notes).
The Sturmgewehr 44 is used by East German Border Guards and police.
One of the East German Guards carries a folding-stock AKS-47 rifle. In a continuity error this becomes a standard fixed stock version of the AK rifle, but as most of the weapon is not visible, identification is impossible.
