A Time to Love and a Time to Die
A Time to Love and a Time to Die is a 1958 war drama directed by Douglas Sirk and based on the 1954 novel by Erich Maria Remarque. Ernst Graeber (John Gavin), a German soldier stationed on the Eastern Front in 1944, is given a furlough. In his native town, nearly devastated by aerial bombardments, he meets Elizabeth Kruse (Liselotte Pulver) whom he knew from childhood. Young men fall in love and hastily marry, but Ernst is ordered to return to front and soon dies while reading a letter from Elizabeth.
The following weapons were used in the film A Time to Love and a Time to Die:
In the scene in Oscar Binding's villa a drunk SS officer Heini (Kurt Meisel) draws a Sauer 38H pistol. His pistol is then seen in hands of Ernst Graeber (John Gavin).
In the opening scene some German soldiers carry MP40 SMGs.
Most German soldiers, including Ernst Graeber (John Gavin), Steinbrenner (Bengt Lindström), Hirschland (Jim Hutton), and Sergeant Muecke (Wolf Harnisch), are armed with Karabiner 98k rifles.
A German soldier carries a Sturmgewehr 44.
Various long guns
Four antique long guns are seen on the wall in Oscar Binding's villa.
Several MG42 machine guns are seen in the opening scene. Immerman (Jock Mahoney) is one of the gunners.
Some German soldiers carry Panzerfaust 30 launchers.
Two anti-aircraft guns are seen. They are seen only in distance; 8.8cm Flak 18 or Flak 36 or Flak 37 is a possible guess.
Ernst Graeber (John Gavin) carries a holster for Luger P08 when he is in furlough. Some other soldiers also carry Luger holsters. Pistols aren't seen, and the holsters are likely empty.
