Turquoise Necklace (Colierul de turcoaze), The
The Turquoise Necklace (Colierul de turcoaze) is a Romanian 1986 adventure movie directed by Gheorghe Vitanidis and starring Florin Piersic as noble brigand Margelatu "The Yellow Rose". The plot is set in the Principality of Wallachia (modern Romania) before the Revolution of 1848. An Austrian banker and his daughter are kidnapped upon crossing the Wallachian border. Austria announce that Wallachian authorities must release the hostages in a week, otherwise the Austrian army will invade the country. "Justice and Brotherhood" organisation is wrongly accused of involvement in the affair, so they sent Margelatu to find and free hostages.
The movie is the fifth of the six about the adventures of Margelatu.
The following weapons were used in the film The Turquoise Necklace (Colierul de turcoaze):
In all six movies Margelatu (Florin Piersic) carries his signature weapon, an eight-barrel pepperbox. The gun is a custom prop, generally resembling Lefaucheux and Francotte models but with separate barrels, like on Mariette Pepperbox.
For a trivia about the gun see the page for the second film.
Percussion Cap Pistol
Percussion Cap Pistols are seen in hands of Hare Lip (Szabolcs Cseh), Vincenzo Gonfalone (David Ohanesian) and other Agatha Slatineanu's henchmen. Some of these pistols may be visually modified Single Barreled Shotguns (see below), but there is no closeups to prove or decline this guess.

Izhmekh IZh-K (visually modified)
Full-stock Single Barreled Shotguns, visually modified by adding a long handguard and additional barrel bands, stand for muskets during the shootout on the marketplace. They aren't fitted with any kind of fake flintlock or percussion cap lock. The spur of the trigger guard and the groove on the stock, combined with the general shape, allow to make a decent guess that the shotguns are Izhmekh IZh-K (but there is a possibility that this is some other model, maybe of local Romanian production).
Mauser Gewehr 1871 (visually modified)
Some muskets, seen in the movie, turn out to be visually modified bolt action Mauser Gewehr 1871 rifles, with removed bolt handles and fitted with mockup flintlocks. Unlike the The Mysteries of Bucharest, they aren't seen close, but the general outlook allows to make such guess.
Unidentified mockup muskets
Some muskets are obviously mockups, but the base gun isn't identified.
