A gripping manhunt through the post-war ruin of a still bombed-out London, this rarely seen Brit Noir stars Hollywood cause celebre Steve Cochran and legendary film noir siren Lizabeth Scott. Directed by BAFTA-winning Val Guest and co-starring George Cole and Nicole Maurey, The Weapon is featured here as a brand-new remaster from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.


Ten-year-old Eric finds a handgun while playing on a bombsite with his friends. The gun accidentally goes off and, as one of the boys lies seriously wounded, Eric takes the gun and hides. When ballistics on the bullet determine the gun was used in an unsolved murder case, the race is on to find Eric before the owner of the gun catches up with him.
