Want to Stay Alivet (original title Le denier du colt) is a 1990 French crime movie directed by Claude Bernard-Aubert and loosely based on the novel "Want to Stay Alive" by James Hadley Chase. It is the third in a series of French screen adaptations of the works of J.H. Chase, preceded by Try This One for Size (1989) and Have a Nice Night (1990), and followed by Believed Violent (1990). The series is united by the person of the insurance investigator Tom Lepski (Michael Brandon) (in the original novels Tom Lepski is a police detective in Paradise City, Florida). In Want to Stay Alivet a mysterious assassin commits several murders of wealthy people. When Lepski's love Liza Mendoza becomes a victim, Lepski starts his personal investigation.

The following weapons were used in the film Want to Stay Alive (Le denier du colt):


Colt Python

In one scene a policeman is seen with a Colt Python revolver in hand. Inspector Jacobi (Stéphane Bonnet) carries a revolver that also appears to be a Colt Python.

Manurhin MR-73

Police officers carry revolvers in holsters. Due to typical position of the logo on the grip, these revolvers can be identified as Manurhin MR-73s.
