Say a Word for the Poor Hussar (original title O bednom gusare zamolvite slovo) is a Soviet 1980 made for TV historical tragicomedy movie directed by Eldar Ryazanov. In mid-19th century Russia Count Merzlyaev (Oleg Basilashvili) is sent with a special mission to a hussar regiment, based in a provincial town. Several hussar officers are suspected of participation in a conspiracy, and Merzlyaev has a plan to test them. The most important element of this plan is an actor Afanasy Bubentsov (Evgeni Leonov) who has to appear in the role of a "conspirator".

The following weapons were used in the film Say a Word for the Poor Hussar (O bednom gusare zamolvite slovo):
