I own the entire series on DVD, Jeremy Brett was Holmes, the best, I could watch that series all day, in fact I have.  My late neighbor, who was originally from some picturesque farming comunity in Devon turned me on to Brett's performance in that role, and then got me hooked on Midsomer Murders, but that's another story.

If this was Colt Army or Dragoon i could name them off the top of my head. But anyway in Date Nigh, a old Remmi is blown to bits.

Sorry to jump in to this a little late (I just joined the forum).
One of the first movies ever made was "The Great Train Robbery" in 190? where one of the bad guys was wielding a Remington NMA.
I've been called the Imelda Marcos of cap & ball for having over 15 of them. That's a compliment.

Dear Friends,
       In the book, "Gone With The Wind," the Remington Revolver that Scarlett O'Hara shot the Union Deserter with, belonged to her late husband, who had gone to war, only to be felled by a disease.  He had begat a son with her soon after their marriage, but this fact was glossed over in the movie!  As some of you have said, "Hollyweird!"  In the book, at the sound of the shot,the children run toward the house, but Mrs. Melanie Wilkes, who helped Scarlett drag the body away, ran to the door, and said to Scarlett's infant son,  something like,"Don't worry, your mommy was playing with your Dear Pappa's pistol and it went off!"  Another example of how Hollywood will completely, "Muck up," a perfectly good story due to a director's whim.  They have made THREE versions of Jack Schaefer's book, "Monte Walsh!  In each case they have fouled the story up! In all three Films, they have made Monte's sidekick, Chet Rollins, into a storekeeper, but then have him murdered by former Slash Y cowboy's.  IN the book, The Honorable Chester A Rollins was the last, or almost last survivor of the Slash Y Outfit, and the book ends with him sitting by Monte's grave, pondering on all the friends who have passed on in one way or another.  His last words as he sits there are: "It's a lonely old world!
Never make the mistake of thinking I will not shoot..........
Because it may be your very last mistake!

I reckon you can add the TV mini-series Hatfields & McCoys to this thread, as "Devil Anse" Hatfield's (Kevin Costner) '58 Brasser made plenty of cameo appearances, along with a nice blued '58 on the title scene. Atually, there were quite a few Remmy shots throughout the show, and they did show well indeed!
Vive la Remmy!

Have you seen this site?


Internet Movie Firearms Database


It identifies all the firearms used in movies, tv, etc. Guns, such as the 1858, have their own pages.

Was watching the 1994 movie Maverick, with Mell Gibson and James Garner, and noted that James Garner is carrying an 1858 conversion pistol.
