Deserter (Dezertir) (1933)
Deserter (Dezertir) is a 1933 Soviet B&W film directed by Vsevolod Pudovkin. A young Hamburg worker, Karl Renn (Boris Livanov), is a member of the German Communist party, but he doesn't show courage in the direct struggle with strikebreakers and police and even deserts a picket-line. His elder comrade Ludwig Zelle chooses Karl as a member of a delegation to the Soviet Union. Karl works together with Soviet workers on a mechanical plant but when he gets news that Zelle is killed by police, he returns to Germany and becomes an active member of the struggle.
The following weapons were used in the film Deserter (Dezertir):
Several German mounted policemen dispersing the workers demonstration carry Karabiner 1888s.
Mannlicher M1895 Short Rifle
Several mounted policemen carry Mannlicher M1895 short rifles that are Stutzen riflemen short rifles or cavalry carbines.
One of the policemen carries a Karabiner 98a, identified by the distinctive stacking hook just below the upper barrel band.
Turkish Mauser M1905 / Serbian Mauser M1908 Carbine (?)
One of the policemen carries a short rifle that is possibly a Turkish Mauser M1905 Carbine or Serbian Mauser M1908 Carbine. The Turkish carbine may be a better guess as many rifles of the Ottoman Army were captured by Russian troops in 1915-1916.
Unidentified infantry rifles
Reichswehr soldiers guarding the strikebreakers carry full-length rifles with long bayonets. These rifles are only seen at a distance and cannot be identified.
Unidentified cavalry rifles
Mounted policemen also carry unidentified short rifles.
A T-27 tankette, armed with a Degtyaryov DT machine gun, stands in for an armored German police vehicle, used against rioting dock workers in Hamburg. This scene was reused in the 1938 film Esli zavtra voyna.
