The Sign of Four: Sherlock Holmes' Greatest Case
The Sign of Four: Sherlock Holmes' Greatest Case is a British 1932 B&W detective movie, loosely based on the famous novel by Arthur Conan Doyle. It is directed by Graham Cutts and stars Arthur Wontner as Sherlock Holmes and Ian Hunter as Dr. Watson.
The following weapons were used in the film The Sign of Four: Sherlock Holmes' Greatest Case:
Compact nickel plated Smith & Wesson-style top-break revolvers are used by Jonathan Small (Graham Soutten), and Inspector Atherly Jones (Gilbert Davis). Same looking revolver is also seen on Sherlock Holmes' table but Holmes later uses another, shorter revolver (see below).
Top-break snub nose revolver
When Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Wontner) fires at Tonga, he holds another top-break revolver, a snub nose model.
Bayard Model 1923
Sherlock Holmes gives a Bayard Model 1923 pistol to Dr. Watson (Ian Hunter). Later same looking pistol is seen in hands of Jonathan Small's accomplice, credited as "The Tattooed Man" (Roy Emerton). While the pistol looks similar to FN Model 1910, it can identified due to its wide angular grips.
Rifles and Muskets
Small caliber rifle
Small caliber rifles are seen in a shooting gallery on a funfair. They have underbarrel tube magazines and seem to have exposed hammers.
A musket in jezail style is seen in Sholto's house. It lacks any kind of lock and is possibly non-firing decorative "wall-hanger".
