Madame Nobel is a 2014 Austrian-German-Czech television film directed by Urs Egger which was first broadcast on December 10, 2014, on ORF, and on January 3, 2015, on Ersten. The screenplay by Rainer Berg and Thomas Wendrich is based on the play Mr. & Mrs. Nobel by Esther Vilar. From the very first moment, the brilliant chemist Alfred Nobel is fascinated by the self-assured appearance of the penniless noblewoman Bertha. She is supposed to give him a hand in business. Unfortunately, Bertha is already taken. Her heart belongs to the young daredevil Arthur Freiherr von Suttner. The two marry hastily and move to the Caucasus where they witness the Russo-Turkish War (1877-1878). Nevertheless, the contact with Nobel does not break off. Bertha and the quiet dynamite inventor remain closely connected by letter and become more and more indispensable allies in the idealistic struggle for a more peaceful, just society.
The following weapons were used in the film Madame Nobel:
Werndl Karabiner M1873/77
Russian Cossacks and light cavalry can be seen with Austrian Werndl Karabiners. Actually, Russian cavalry was armed with Berdan Dragoon, Cossack rifles and/or carbines.
Dreyse Model 1841
Instead of accurate Berdan No. 2 rifles, the Prussian Dreyse Model 1841 needle gun is the main weapon for Russian infantrymen.
A Russian officer is briefly seen with a holstered revolver.
What appears to be a Wheellock Pistol is seen with the princess' servant.
