The Name Day (Den angela) is a Soviet 1968 drama movie directed by Stanislav Govorukhin and based on the 1935 short story "Mekhanik Solerno" by Boris Zhitkov. In 1907, the Russian passenger steamer "Tsesarevich" makes a voyage in the Atlantic Ocean. Suddenly a fire is discovered in the cargo hold. The captain orders to hide it from the passengers to avoid panic. When all attempts to extinguish the fire are in vain, one of the ship's officers allegedly secretly informs the passengers that the next morning there will be a celebration of the captain's name day, and a picnic on the ship's lifeboats will take place on this occasion. This lie allows to organize a successful rescue.

The following weapons were used in the film The Name Day (Den angela):

Mauser Model 1914 Pocket Pistol

The ship's captain (Ivan Pereverzev) owns a Mauser Model 1914 Pocket Pistol. In the original Zhitkov's story, the captain's sidearm is described as a Browning.

Mlinskiy (Aleksandr Rogovin), an agent of the Russian secret police, carries a pocket pistol. Only a small part of the grip can be seen. When Mlinskiy searches Nazymov's (Anatoliy Azo) cabin, suspecting him to be a revolutionary, Nazymov takes him by surprise and takes away the pistol but returns it when Mlinskiy explains that he is not a thief. When the pistol is in Nazymov's hands, it is beyond the lower border of the frame and cannot be seen.

A small part of the pistol grip is seen in Mlinskiy's pocket when Nazymov disarms him.
