Calcutta is a 1946 B&W noir adventure drama directed by John Farrow and starring Alan Ladd as Neale Gordon, a pilot on flights between Calcutta and Chungking. When Gordon returns from a flight, he gets news that his friend Bill Cunningham was murdered. Gordon begins his personal investigation. He meets Bill's fiance Virginia Moore (Gail Russell) and, despite being charmed by her, becomes suspicious.
The following weapons were used in the film Calcutta:
When Mul Raj Malik (Paul Singh) comes into Gordon's hotel room, he is armed with a bright nickel plated Webley Bulldog revolver.
Smith & Wesson .32 Hand Ejector Third Model
In the final scene Virginia Moore (Gail Russell) takes a nickel plated Smith & Wesson .32 Hand Ejector Third Model revolver. Neale Gordon (Alan Ladd) disarms her and uses the gun.
Colt Detective Special
Eric Lasser (Lowell Gilmore) holds a Colt Detective Special in the final scene. The film poster shows Alan Ladd holding a Colt DS but his character doesn't use this gun in the movie.
Police Inspector Kendricks (Gavin Muir) and his subordinates carry unidentified revolvers in holsters.
Colt Model 1908
Neale Gordon's (Alan Ladd) personal handgun is a Colt Model 1908 (the gun is described as "Colt .38 caliber" so it must be an M1908 rather than .32 M1903). The pistol is taken from him by Mul Raj Malik (Paul Singh), and later this gun is seen in hands of police officers.
Neale Gordon (Alan Ladd), Pedro Blake (William Bendix) and Bill Cunningham (John Whitney) carry M1911 pistols in holsters when they perform flight duties.
A guard on the airfield is armed with an M1903 Springfield rifle.
