Shadows Disappear at Noon (Teni ischezayut v polden)
Shadows Disappear at Noon (Teni ischezayut v polden) is a Soviet 1972 (filmed in 1970-71) seven-part mini series directed by Vladimir Krasnopolskiy and Valeriy Uskov and based on the same title novel by Anatoliy Ivanov. It depicts the life and fate of several generations of fellow villagers from the Siberian village of Zelyony Dol in 1916-1950s.
The following weapons were used in the film Shadows Disappear at Noon (Teni ischezayut v polden):
Short-barreled Nagant revolver
In Ep.1 a merchant Andrey Vasilyevich Zhukov (Pyotr Dolzhanov) owns a short-barreled version of Nagant M1895 revolver. Later this revolver is seen in hands of village miller Anisim Shatrov (Lev Polyakov), a rich peasant Filipp Menshikov (Sergey Polezhaev), and at last it is used by Zhukov's son Konstantin Zhukov (Sergey Yakovlev) who hides under false name Ustin Morozov (and appears in following episodes under the new name). This gun is anachronistic for 1916-1920 as it appeared only in 1927.
Standard Nagant revolver
During the events of Russian revolution and civil war (Ep.1) standard Nagant M1895 revolvers are used by Bolshevik Viktor Andreevitch (Viktor Shulgin), Red partisans Frol Kurganov (Valeri Gatayev) and Zakhar Bolshakov (Pyotr Velyaminov), and White officers.
During the events of Russian revolution and civil war (Ep.1) Mauser C96 pistols are used by both Reds and Whites, including Frol Kurganov (Valeri Gatayev), Red Commissar (Konstantin Berdikov ), Filipp Menshikov (Sergey Polezhaev), Taras (Boris Novikov) and several brigands.
Unique Model 10
Seraphima Klychkova (Aleksandra Zavyalova) owns a pocket pistol of FN Model 1905 family. The general outlook is similar to French Unique Model 10.
What appears to be a Steyr M1912 is partially seen in holster, carried by Bolshevik Philemon Kolesnikov (Anatoliy Solovyov) in Ep.1.
In Ep.4, set during WW2, Ustin Morozov (Sergey Yakovlev) and Demid Menshikov (Roman Filippov) who turned collaborators, serving to Nazi Germany, use Luger P08 pistols.
Mosin Nagant M1891
In Ep.1 Mosin Nagant M1891 rifles are widely used during the events of Russian revolution and civil war by Reds, Whites and brigands, notably Marya Voronova (Nina Ruslanova), Filipp Menshikov (Sergey Polezhaev), Demid Menshikov (Roman Filippov), and Antip Nikulin (Evgeniy Shutov).
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles, standing for original M91s, are also seen, notably used by Zakhar Bolshakov (Pyotr Velyaminov) and Filipp Menshikov (Sergey Polezhaev).
Mosin Nagant "Obrez"
"Obrez" sawed-off Mosin Nagant rifles are used by several brigands of Filipp Menshikov's band, notably Matveyka (Igor Surovtsev).
Winchester Model 1895
Some Red partisans, including Frol Kurganov (Valeri Gatayev), and brigands carry Winchester Model 1895 rifles in Ep.1.
Mauser Karabiner 98k
In Ep.4 German soldiers, escorting Fyodor Morozov, are armed with Karabiner 98k rifles.
An anachronistic IZh-17 single barreled shotgun is used by Red partisans Antip Nikulin (Evgeniy Shutov) and Andron Ovchinnikov (Ivan Ryzhov) in Ep.1. Shotguns of early 20th century have roughly similar outlook.
Single Barreled Shotgun
Some partisans carry Single Barreled Shotguns that may be same IZh-17 or another model.
Double Barreled Shotgun
Double Barreled Shotguns are also used by Red partisans, including Frol Kurganov (Valeri Gatayev), in Ep.1.
Maxim M1910/30 machine guns, standing for original M1910s, are used in Ep.1 by both Red partisans and brigands.
76.2 mm divisional gun model 1902
A 76.2 mm divisional gun model 1902 is seen during the revolution events in Ep.1.
