Roaring Twenties, The
The Roaring Twenties (1939) was a Depression-era crime film directed by Raoul Walsh and starred James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, and Priscilla Lane. World War I veterans are unable to find work in Depression-era America and turn to bootlegging to survive.
The following firearms were used in the film The Roaring Twenties:
Sgt. Pete Jones (Joe Sawyer) is briefly seen with a Colt M1911 in a holster. Later, during the 1920 montage, a bootlegger is seen holding a M1911 when opening a door.
Colt Official Police
George Hally (Humphrey Bogart) carries a Colt Official Police. Eddie steals a New Service from George's thug Lefty (Abner Biberman), using it to fatally shoot George.
Colt Police Positive
Eddie's rival gangster, Nick Brown (Paul Kelly) uses a Colt Police Positive during the shootout in the Italian restaurant.
Colt Detective Special
During his time as a bootlegger, Eddie Bartlett (James Cagney) packs a Colt Detective Special. However, as most scenes are set prior to 1927, the Detective Special would be anachronistic.
One of the warehouse guards carries a revolver.
During the 1924 montage, a Thompson M1921A is fired as a symbol of the rising violence of the era.
During their WWI service, Eddie Bartlett (James Cagney), George Hally (Humphrey Bogart), and Lloyd (Jeffrey Lynn) each have a M1903 Springfield rifle.
Winchester Model 1894
Danny Green (Frank McHugh) carries a Winchester rifle, most likely a Winchester Model 1894 during Eddie's "Coast Guard" robbery of Nick Brown's shipment.
