Harlem Nights (1989)

Harlem Nights is a 1989 crime comedy that was written and directed by Eddie Murphy, who also starred in the film.

The following weapons were used in the film Harlem Nights:

Colt Sheriff's Model Single Action Army (3.5" barrel)

A seven-year-old Quick (Desi Arnez Hines II) uses Sugar Ray's Colt Sheriff's Model SAA revolver with a 3.5" barrel and nickel finish (which appears to have a sawn barrel) to fatally shoot a toothless gambler (Ji-Tu Cumbuka) in the forehead during the opening 1918 flashback.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

Quick (Eddie Murphy) draws a Smith & Wesson Model 36 from an ankle holster during his fight with Vera (Della Reese), using it to shoot her in the foot when she draws a razor. (The use of the Model 36, developed in 1950, is anachronistic for a scene set in 1938).
