Tom Sawyer (Russian: Том Сойер; Tom Soyer) is the 1936 Soviet adventure movie family movie, very loosely based on the Mark Twain' novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

PS. The doubling of the several images is the defect of the old film tape.

The following weapons were used in the film Tom Sawyer:

The “Missouri River” naval steamer is equipped with the smoothbore muzzle-loaded cannon. The combination of relatively large caliber and short barrel allows to suggest that it's a yedinorog ("unicorn"), a specific Russian model of the gun-howitzers of the 18th-19th centuries. This particular yedinorog seems to be naval model of early 1800s in 8-pounder caliber.

Naval Steamer

The “Missouri River” naval combat steamer appeared at the several scenes. Actually, it's a small river paddle steamer, maybe a tug but of course originally it wasn't a naval ship. In the movie it appears as a kind of gunboat.
