US Release Poster
The Last Four Days (original title Mussolini: Ultimo atto - English: "The Last Act of Mussolini") is a 1974 Italian movie directed by Carlo Lizzani and starring Rod Steiger as Benito Mussolini and Franco Nero as Walter Audisio.
The following weapons were used in the film The Last Four Days:
Benito Mussolini's (Rod Steiger) personal firearm is a revolver that appears to be a Bodeo M1889 (in reality Mussolini carried a Beretta M1934 pistol when he was captured).

In one scene Walter Audisio (Franco Nero) draws a pistol but it is hardly seen. Most reasonable guess would be a Beretta M1934 but it's only a guess.
