To Skin a Spy (French title Avec la peau des autres, Italian title Sciarada per quattro spie) is a 1966 French-Italian spy thriller directed by Jacques Deray and based on the novel by Gilles Perrault. Pascal Fabre (Lino Ventura), a French intelligence operative, is sent to Vienna to clear up suspicions that the head of the French intelligence network in Austria, Margeri (Jean Bouise), is a double agent. The situation is complicated by the fact that Soviet agent Chalieff (Wolfgang Preiss) and his men unfold a real hunt for a microfilm that is hidden in Margeri's cane.

The following weapons were used in the film To Skin a Spy (Avec la peau des autres):

FN Model 1922

An FN Model 1922 is used by Pascal Fabre (Lino Ventura) throughout the movie. The character uses his left hand for shooting, and this is an intentional plot element.
