    I just saw an old movie with Clark Gable, Mogambo.
    In the movie he both cleans and uses a rifle.
    It looks like a classic safari rifle without scopes.

    Always when I see a rifle I try do determin what type it is. ( Im not so sucessful but it is fun trying )

    There must be a lot of movies where the story is about anything else than hunting but where hunting is included.

    Do you know about other movies ?

    Good movie. But was there any hunting ?
    If we should name movies with guns intended for shooting people this list would be long and out of line.

    Another decent quality hunting movie : THE HUNTER, and it is a story taking place in Tasmania, that of a man in pursuit of the last Tasmanian Tiger in spectacular scenery. Starring Willem Dafoe (Platoon, The English Patient, Born on the Fourth of July, Mississippi Burning etc) and Sam Neil (Jurassic Park). The movie is made in Australia.

    Hatari is a must and personal favorite of mine as I hunted very near where it was filmed.

    My favorite, as far as hunting, scenery and old rifles is concerned, is a movie called 'JEREMIAH JOHNSON' starring Robert Redford. Was filmed all over Utah, if I remember correctly.
