Streets of Fire. A Rock & Roll Fable is a 1984 neo-noir action movie directed by Walter Hill. A Rock & Roll singer Ellen Aim (Diane Lane) is kidnapped during the concert by a biker gang, led by Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe). Tom Cody (Michael Paré), a retired soldier and Ellen ex-boyfriend, is hired to rescue her. The movie was intended to start a trilogy about the adventures of Tom Cody but the failure at the box office puts an end to these plans. Nevertheless, Albert Pyun made an unofficial sequel Road to Hell in 2008, with reappearance of Paré as Cody and Deborah Van Valkenburgh as Cody's sister.

The following weapons were used in the film Streets of Fire:


Browning Hi-Power

McCoy (Amy Madigan) carries a Browning Hi-Power in shoulder holster.

Ruger Redhawk

A stainless steel Ruger Redhawk with a 4.2" barrel and squared butt is among the guns, purchased by Tom Cody (Michael Paré) from Pete the Mechanic (John Dennis Johnston). Unlike two other Tom's guns, Marlin Model 336 and Ithaca 37, the revolver has only limited use. The revolver lacks both front and rear sights. It is entirely possible that this is the same exact gun seen in A Low Down Dirty Shame.
