    Krags in movies, another sighting

    To the list:

    I was down in Tucson last couple weeks ... hooked up with my wife and son.We got a short-term rental in a kind of tough area along Speedway. With cable.

    Yesterday there was a movie showing, a western, it was set in the mexican Revolution, lots of muchachos in camisas blancas y sombreros. Wasn't paying much attention until Raquel Welch showed up in hot pants, a thin cotton blouse and no bra .. then Jim Brown and Burt Reynolds. Then they dragged out a box marked (hahaha) U.S. Rifels, Kragicon-Jorgenson, 30-40. They opened it up and pulled out a couple mint long rifles.

    Well, besides that the movie has a wet-shirt scene with Ms. Welch showering under a railroad water tank as an armored train trainload of Mexican soldiers pulls up. She lures them to their deaths at the hands of the muchachos...



    The movie was "100 Rifles." The 100 rifles were the McGuffin in the story: Burt Reynolds is a half-yaqui outlaw who robs a bank in Texas of $6,000 to buy rifles for his Indian relaives in their fight against the mexican government. Yeah, he got took, seein as how Krags were going for a few dollars at the time.

    Anyway, you get to see Krags goign by in the battle scenes, etc. etc. Raquel is in the thick of the fighting wering not an awaful lot of clothing, YAY!!!, plus she has a love scene with Jim Brown that supposedly caused riots back in the day ..

    Yeah Raquel Welch in her prime and soaking wet. Guns? I don't remember any guns... wait, oh yeah, there were some Krags.

    gunga din...

    take a look at another hollywood epic, the 1933 Gunga Din....Douglas Fairbanks Jnr and Cary Grant. You'll see lots of Long Lee Enfields but in the final scenes you see the hero carrying a long Kragicon rifle...go figure.

    So they even made it to the North West passage or whatever the god forsaken place was called.....maybe its now Iraq huh....

    The Spanish partisan leader in Gary Cooper's FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (Spanish Civil War epic) carries a Kragicon carbine, probably a '96.
