Death in the Garden is a 1956 French-Mexican adventure film directed by Luis Buñuel. In a fictional South American state, police forces terrorize the population. In a small and remote village, a group of diamond miners refuses to be bullied and rehearses the uprising. The adventurer Shark flees into the depths of the jungle with a priest, the whore Djin and two other companions. The inhospitable environment turns into hell for the adventurers and increasingly leads to tensions within the group that degenerate into tangible confrontations.

The following weapons were used in the film Death in the Garden:


Colt M1911

The Colt M1911 is the personal firearm of Captain Ferrero (Jorge Martínez de Hoyos), Second Lieutenant Jiménez (Alberto Pedret) and a First lieutenant (José Muñoz).
