You are Attagirl, Anita! (a direct translation of the original title Ty molodets, Anita!) is a Soviet 1957 (filmed 1956) adventure drama movie directed by Vladimir Kochetov and Yevgeniy Nekrasov. The story takes place in a nameless Mediterranean state (the characters have Italian and Spanish names, but all the inscriptions are in Spanish, and many details correspond to Francoist Spain). A group of Communist port workers acts to prevent a ship Magdalena with soldiers from depart to an African colony. One of the leaders of the group is young woman Fernana whose fiance Federico was killed in colonial war. She persuades shipmaster Terracini, Federico's father, to help the Communists. Fernana's younger sister, teenage Anita, is involved in these events.

The following weapons were used in the film You are Attagirl, Anita! (Ty molodets, Anita!):


Walther P38

In a flashback scene that depicts Federico Terracini's death in North Africa an officer (uncredited) uses a Walther P38 to shoot Federico who refused to participate in the shooting of two local men, an old man and a boy. A P38 is also seen in hands of a port worker in the final scene when a Communist group board a police boat to liberate arrested Fernana.

Mauser Pocket Pistol

Mauser Pocket Pistols, most likely M1914 or M1934, are seen in hands of a Communist port worker and a police officer during the liberation of Fernana. Possibly a single prop is used.

Unidentified pistol

A pistol is seen in hands of a sailor Emilio Revera (Aleksandr Gedinskiy) who participates in liberating of Fernana. The gun resembles M1911 but it's hard to say for sure.

Submachine Guns

Beretta Model 38/42 and 38/43

In the scene of loading onto Magdalena and in the flashback scene of Federico's death soldiers carry Beretta Model 38/42 submachine guns in both early and later model, the latter referred as Model 38/43. Model 38/43 still has recoil spring extension in the back of the receiver, removed on later Model 38/44, but the fluted barrel is replaced with unfluted one (visually more heavy than on 38/44).
