The Last Desperate Hours (original title Milano: il clan dei Calabresi, "Milan: The Clan of Calabrians") is a 1974 Italian crime thriller directed by Giorgio Stegani. Paolo Mancuso (Antonio Sabato), a crime boss in Milan, is hunted by a rival gang. While Mancuso is pursued by killers, he hides in a bio laboratory where he is infected by deadly disease.

The following weapons were used in the film The Last Desperate Hours (Milano: il clan dei Calabresi):


Riva Esterina Dobermann

Numerous characters of the movie, including Paolo Mancuso (Antonio Sabato), various criminals and police, carry snub nose revolvers. They resemble Smith & Wesson Model 36 but the high profile of the front sight and the different shape of the frame and barrel allow to identify this gun as Riva Esterina Dobermann, an Italian clone of S&W Model 36. At least one revolver has a Riva Esterina logo on the grip so it's most likely that all of them are domestic guns, more available for filming.
