A Walk in the Sun (1945)

A Walk in the Sun is a 1945 World War II film that follows a US Army platoon that lands in Italy in 1943 and is commanded by Sergeant Bill Tyne (Dana Andrews). As the platoon makes its way inland to attempt to take a fortified farmhouse, tension in the platoon ensures as casualties mount. Director Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front) achieves a gritty realism that is ultimately closer to the truth of combat.

M1A1 Thompson

For some reason they showed the one soldier always carrying an M1A1 Thompson but for all the firing scenes it was switched for a Model 1928A1 Thompson, probably because the 1928A1 was easier to blank adapt.
