Default What's your favorite 1911/A1 movie?

One of my favorite movies with a 1911A1 in Hollywood combat is We Were Soldiers. The CSM didn't use a rifle, he used a 1911A1.

What's yours favorite 1911/A1 movie?

One of my favorites although I believe most think it’s a bad movie- Last Man Standing with Bruce Willis has nonstop 1911 action and even better, he uses two at the same time.

I think that was SGM Basil L. Plumley, he was a three time CIB award. Also one of my favorite movies.

Another is the Lost Battalion.

Keep your pea shooter, I'll use my pistol.

I believe that action in 1965 was pre-Command Sergeant Major. Command may have been his duty, but I think the rank was just Sergeant Major.

I think CSM came about in 1966.

Loved the novel (THE THIN RED LINE by JAMES JONES) when I read it back in '62 or '63!!!

ALTHOUGH...

I never did think too much of either of the two movies based on the book...

BUT...

The M1911A1 played a prominent role in both the book & the movies!!!

Lost Battalion is a great WW1 movie and lots of 1911 action
Longmire was also a great series and he carried a 1911a1 with stag grips
