Cirelaw,
That same McQueen shot you posted from The Great Escape has been my avatar for many years. Nice shot of him.

Watched the movie "Gorky Park" last night. A Luger figured prominently in a couple of scenes including one in which it was used to kill an individual in a Russian bath house.

All Quiet On the Western Front (1930) has a quick showing of a luger.

The Spanish TV series "Jaguar" has many scenes with a Luger. It has fancy grips with an E/S on it.

In one scene on a beach, the Luger is being shot but there is a slide moving straight back and straight forward. Obviously a Luger in appearance only.

Anybody know the name of that one?
Sounds like 'Band of Brothers' when they were at Bastonge

Note, that the toggle of this pistol is not locked. This may be the result of a Luger which has been modified to fire a blank with just enough power to operate the toggle and eject the case. and chamber a new blank round.

There is a series on PBS Masterpiece that I found on Amazon Prime called “World on Fire” on season one shows Polish underground luring unsuspecting German soldiers with a pretty girl into a compromising position and then executing them using a Luger. Good series.

A luger is used in a duel
by a Texas Oilman, Charles Delarco (Robert Mitchum) with an English Earl Victor Rhyall (Cary Grant), who has a Webley Mk IV .38 revolver, in the movie "The Grass is Greener" (1960).
