Lonely Hearts is a 2006 film depicting the efforts of Nassau County Detective Elmer C. "Buster" Robinson (John Travolta) to track and arrest a couple known as the "Lonely Hearts Killers" (played by Jared Leto and Salma Hayek) during the late 1940s after the suicide of his wife. Although the film takes several liberties (for instance, the real Martha Beck was over two hundred pounds, weighing much more than Salma Hayek), it is interesting to note that the film was written and directed by Det. Robinson's grandson Todd Robinson.

The following firearms were used in the film Lonely Hearts:

Smith & Wesson Model 10

Most of the Nassau County detectives, including Elmer C. "Buster" Robinson (John Travolta) and Charlie Hilderbrandt (James Gandolfini) carry Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolvers, also seen in the hands of the Grand Rapids, MI police. After the opening credits, Anne Robinson is seen shooting herself with a Model 10 - most likely belonging to her husband - which Hilderbrandt describes during a voice-over as a "service .38".
