Earthquake is a 1974 American disaster film that dramatizes the effects of a devastating earthquake upon the city of Los Angeles. The film was released during the Hollywood wave of disaster-themed films and released with a unique sound design known as "Sensurround", which allowed movie audiences to experience a simulated earthquake in their seats. The cast includes Charlton Heston, Lorne Greene, and George Kennedy.


The following weapons were used in the film Earthquake:


Smith & Wesson Model 19

Sgt. Lou Slade (George Kennedy) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 19.

Smith & Wesson Model 19 Combat Magnum - .357 Magnum.

Slade's weapon was selected. However, the Model 19 can also fire .38 Special ammunition, so it's not far off from the truth.

M16

The National Guard troops are armed with M16 assault rifles.
