Clint Eastwood with MS Takedown
      #306237 - 11/10/17 09:29 PM

Here's a few pix from a little noticed 1990 film titled 'White Hunter, Black Heart'

The film starred Eastwood in a semi biographical role based on famed director John Houston as viewed by a young writer who had been brought to Africa to finish the screenplay of The African Queen.

In one scene Eastwood's character is outfitting for safari at an expensive salon when he says (iirc), "and throw in a couple of these little six point fives, the Mannlichers."

MS takedown rifles are featured in several scenes. It's not a bad flick, I have it on DVD.












Even Clint can't help but smile when holding a Mannlicher Schoenauer

'Fraid I must agree.
Interesting rifles and Africana notwithstanding, perhaps Clint's worst movie ever...?
