    Old Memories

    Great List. And there are still other movies that belong on the list, like the Sands of Iwo Jima, with John Wayne (who carried a M1 Garand, while others carried BARs and Carbines).

    There's a classic shot of Errol Flynn being parachuted into Burma (Objective Burma) carrying his M1A1icon carbine.

    Brings back old memories. My dad took me to see To Hell and Back with Audie Murphy when it first came out in '55 (I was 8 years old)

    Thanks.

    If I remember right the old TV Series Combat had the LT in charge of the platoon was using a .30 Carbine a lot. When I was a kid I always wanted to be the BAR operator in the squad though. Of course the TV magic had the BAR operator using 500 round magazines though. Plus the gun barrels never got red hot or melted either.

    No one mentioned "Heartbreak Ridge"

    The opening seen shows Carbines in full auto.

    The AMC Series "Hell on Wheels" about building the transcontinental railroad did a very interesting scene that did not follow the typical "movie" gunfight.

    The protagonist was shooting a Griswold revolver, and had shot all 6 rounds from the gun, deftly tapped the wedge out, quickly separated the gun and reloaded with a spare cylinder from his waistcoat pocket, and re assembled the gun. The whole process was very smooth and the actor must have practiced it a fair bit. I understand this was a common thing to do with cap and ball revolvers, but seeing it in a fictional TV show was an interesting touch of history.
