I don't know if this has been previously posted or not but from Blood Diamonds (2006):

It was the gun used to shoot the Pope.
It may still be on display at a museum in Poland.

Among a slew of other firearms, the Hi Power was heavily featured in Sahara.

Lorraine (Charlize Theron) briefly handles a Browning Hi-Power. Judging from the external extractor and old-style ring hammer it appears to be ether a Hungarian FEG PJK-9HP or a highly desirable 1960's "T" Series Browning Hi-Power.

Pretty much every episode. Red favors a blued Hi Power and uses one almost exclusively through the series.

Thanks for everyone's replies. I had a photo but couldn't get it to post. Can anyone recommend a good photo sharing site ? One that I guess assigns a "URL" extension so the photo can then be posted here and on other sites. I used Phototbucket for years until that went to h--l. Thanks in advance.

It started in pre-war gangster movies. I seem to remember a famous scene with Bogart in a Fedora and trenchcoat covering somebody with a GP-35.

I watched two episodes of Father Brown (S4E5 and S6 E5) on Netflix to see the BHP. I plan on watching Black List too.

Tomorrow the BHP has a range date with me.

The film I have seen with the most Hi-Power action is a dual holstered set sported by Richard Harris in the 1974 film 99 44/100% dead. Good film. Check it out. All those new films blow except Usual Suspects.

I was wondering when someone was going to bring up Beverly Hills Cop.

He was also fond of the HP! Pried from his hands right before the locals "sorted" it out.

Casino Royale with Daniel Craig as 007. He used one in the initial shootout scene at the "Nambutu" embassy.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
