Hopelessly Lost (Sovsem propashchiy)
Hopelessly Lost (also released in English as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; original title Sovsem propashchiy) is a Soviet 1973 adventure comedy movie directed by Georgiy Daneliya. The film is a screen adaptation of Mark Twain's novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
The following weapons were used in the film Hopelessly Lost (Sovsem propashchiy):
Percussion Dueling Pistol
Muskets and Rifles
Percussion Cap Musket
Huck Finn (Roman Madyanov) takes a percussion cap musket to defend himself of his father (Vladimir Basov) who is in a fit of delirium tremens. Upon close inspection the gun appears to be converted from flintlock.
Winchester Model 1895 (visually modified)
Guards on the pier, firing at escaping Jim, are armed with Winchester Model 1895 rifles of Russian Contract model. The guns are visually modified by removing the part of handguard and adding fake tube magazine. Possibly it was done to make them look similar to classic Wild West carbines, like Winchester Model 1873. Similar looking props are seen in several other Mosfilm productions, like Businessmen (Delovye lyudi) and Dersu Uzala. Same gun is used by Huck's friend Buck (Dmitriy Yershov) who, despite his age, is engaged in blood feud with another local family.
