Hi-Powers in film Post pics :)

Post any Hi-Power stills you have from the movies, or name any films where BHPs appear.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. They must of couldn't find an old BHP, because this one looked like an epoxy finished Mk III with wood grips. In one scene you can even see the three white sight dots.


Raiders of the Lost Ark. Indy carries an Inglis Canada Hi Power as a back up weapon


Casino Royale. Bond takes a Mk III from a government official in Madagascar.


That's all I have for now.

Here's a good one. James Coburn's character points a BHP at the Mexican governor he just grabbed the gun from.

Movie: "Duck, You Sucker!"
Movie time frame: 1913.

I think I've seen a Hi-Power in a couple episodes of The Fall Guy.

"Duck, You Sucker" is one of my favorite films. I think it suffers in popularity because the name makes people think it's some kind of B movie blaxploitation film. It's actually similar (in some ways) to the Wild Bunch. Coburn is an IRA bomber on the run, who gets caught up in the Mexican revolution.

I never noticed the Hi Power, though.

Am I a bit surprised as I believe the gun Vasquez used to multi-tap an alien in the AC ducts in Aliens was a HiPower.


eta: Apparently it was an S&W Model 39

While not necessarily disputing you just curious why you think an Inglis HP was used in Raiders of the Lost Ark? While a HP was most definitely used in the movie, nonetheless, "Indy Gear: The Indiana Jones Equipment Resource" (http://www.indygear.com/igguns.html), certainly an authoritative source*, is silent on exactly what model of HP was used. As to their being an authoritative source I was impressed with the research and sources of information in their reporting on the provenance of the two S&W revolvers used in the movie.

Another still from the movie:

*IndyGear does refer to it as a "Browning Hi-Power" which would on the face of it preclude it being an Inglis Hi-Power. However, as I'm sure we're all aware, many non-"Browning" Hi-Powers - FN, Inglis etc. are often mistakenly referred to as "Browning " Hi-Powers in the popular idiom and casual conversation.

post date:

I just enlarged the last photo I posted and it is clearly evident that the rear sight is the "humped" style unique to the Inglis HP. While "Indy" could conceivably be carrying a HP - 1935 production/1936 time setting for the movie he most certainly couldn't be carrying an Inglis in 1936. Thanks. Hoppe's no.10

Just in response to the "Inglis Indy" question. I thought that Inglis and maybe Ishapore were the only HP models that had the scallop on the side of the slide for removing the slide stop and the "island" for the rear sites.
