On this edition of Curator's Corner, National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier joins John Popp to present the Schofield revolver and holster wielded by Steve McQueen in the 1966 film Nevada Smith, currently on display as part of the Hollywood Guns Exhibit. Schreier explains that 1966 was before manufacturers started remaking Schofield revolvers, so this gun, as well as other guns in period movies from this era in film, are actually authentic antique firearms. In addition, this gun is especially unique because it was repurposed for Wells Fargo before becoming a Hollywood gun. Originally aired 3/17/2011.
