Room 13 (German title Zimmer 13, French title L'attaque du fourgon postal) is a 1964 German-French detective movie directed by Harald Reinl and adapted from the 1924 novel "Room 13" by Edgar Wallace. London criminal Joe Legge (Richard Häussler) forces wealthy nobleman Sir Robert Marney (Walter Rilla) to help him with a railroad robbery by threatening the life of Marney's daughter, Denise (Karin Dor). In his desperation, Marney hires private detective Johnny Gray (Joachim Fuchsberger). Meanwhile, a serial killer murders several women with a razor, and one of victims is found near the Marney's estate.

The film is the fifteenth installment in the Rialto Film studio film series (1959-1972) adapted from the novels of Edgar Wallace, and the second screen adaptation of the original novel, following 1938 British film Mr. Reeder.


The following weapons were used in the film Room 13 (Zimmer 13):

Wz. 35 Vis

In the scene in Legge's night club, a constable holds a pistol that appears to be a Wz. 35 Vis. A similar pistol is seen in the hands of a gangster during the train robbery. Similar pistols are used by at least one more gangster, and several constables during the arrest of the gang; these are also possibly Vis wz. 35s, but may be some other M1911-style guns.

Submachine Guns

Sten Mk II

Legge's gangsters are seen with Sten Mk II submachine guns when they prepare for the robbery. As the exterior scenes were filmed in Denmark, during the robbery, their Stens are replaced with Hovea M1949 submachine guns. Stens are also seen in the train transporting a large amount of cash.

Hovea M1949

Hovea M1949 submachine guns are used by the gangsters during the robbery and the following shootout with police. When the money is loaded onto the train, police guards are also armed with Hovea M49s. Many of these SMGs are fitted with blank firing adapters.

Unidentified rifle

Legge's henchman Blackstone-Edwards (Benno Hoffmann) uses a hunting or sporter rifle with sniper scope during the assassination attempt on Johnny Gray. Police expert Dr. Higgins claims that the rifle is chambered in 9mm caliber, but the slim barrel allows to guess that this is a rather small caliber gun.
