The Night of the Following Day is an American 1969 crime drama directed by Hubert Cornfield and starring Marlon Brando, Richard Boone, Rita Moreno and Pamela Franklin. A young heiress is kidnapped by a gang of criminals in France and held hostage in a remote beach house. Her father is ready to pay the ransom, but the tensions grow among the kidnappers, and one of them plans to double-cross the others.

The following weapons were used in the film The Night of the Following Day:


Webley RIC

In the climactic scene in the bar, the bartender (Jacques Marin) draws a compact revolver that turns out to be a short-barreled Webley RIC. When the bartender fires his gun, it switches to a Harrington & Richardson Premier due to a continuity error.

The bartender draws the revolver from below the counter. The loading gate and the faceted barrel are seen.

Harrington & Richardson Premier

Due to a continuity error, the bartender's (Jacques Marin) revolver switches from a RIC to a top-break nickel plated compact revolver, most likely a Harrington & Richardson Premier. Later in the same scene, same looking revolver (probably the same prop reused) is used by Vi (Rita Moreno).

Submachine Guns

Sten Mk II

In the climactic scene, Bud (Marlon Brando) is armed with a Sten Mk II, fitted with a mockup sound suppressor (nevertheless, the sound of gunfire is still loud).

M1928A1 Thompson

When Leer (Richard Boone) ambushes the car of his partners, he is armed with a M1928A1 Thompson. Despite the Thompson being seen at a distance or unclearly, it is still identifiable as such. When Leer fires, the SMG switches to an MP 40 due to a continuity error.
