Number Seventeen is a 1932 British B&W crime thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock, adapted from the 1925 stage play by Joseph Jefferson Farjeon. A group of criminals commit a jewel robbery and hide their loot in an old unihabited house near the coastline. When they meet in the house, everyone tries to get a diamond necklace for himself or herself. Meanwhile, one of the gang members turns out to be an undercover detective, and the involvement of a tramp Ben who stays in this empty house complicates ths situtation even more.

The following weapons were used in the film Number Seventeen:

Iver Johnson American Bulldog

While searching the dead body in the empty house, Ben (Leon M. Lion) finds an Iver Johnson American Bulldog revolver. After he accidentally shoots the gun, "Nephew" (Barry Jones) disarms him. When the gang escapes via a cellar, "Nephew" leaves the gun on the table, and Forsythe (John Stuart) takes it.

Gerstenberger & Eberwein EM-GE Model 4

Brant (Donald Calthrop) holds a pocket pistol in several scenes. Perfect close-up reveal it as a German manufactured Gerstenberger & Eberwein EM-GE Model 4 starter pistol. This pistol is also briefly held by Nora (Anne Grey).

When Ben draws a revolver, Brant in turn aims his pistol at the tramp. A perfect close-up allows to see even the markings on the slide. The position of the hinge and the slanted slide serration allow to differ Model 4 from a similar EM-GE Model 3.
