    I was watching Sand Pebbles with Steve McQueen this morning and noticed about 3 or 4 Lewis guns on the deck of a small Naval ship. The film is from 1966 and I'm wondering if at least one of these was reused in Star Wars?


    This is the first time I've seen one of these used in a film other than Star Wars. Has any one else spotted one of these in another film?

    I think I remember seeing one years ago in the Tom Selleck movie "Road to China." Although it may have been the aircraft version, but I remember the magazine. It might also have been used in the "Lost Battilon" and "All quiet on the Western Front." Both of which are World War I movies and it possible the Lewis Gun was used in them, but I don't know.

    I think there was one in Biggles (1986).

    Yes, I admit I saw the film. :p

    There was one used by Lee Marvin in The Professionals, starring Burt Lancaster.....(1966)

    (I love Biggles BTW ;) )

    The lewis is also seen in the Combat TV series. I don't remember the episode but I believe in the first season.

    I remember the one from High Road to China.

    He even mentions it: "Go grab the Lewis Gun."

    Notice the casing spitting out in the last frame.

    (If you want to know why he has a white suit on, watch the film for yourself.) :)
