Default Very old film

It's very hard to identify the revolver. I guess that it is an early top-break Webley but it can be a Bulldog-style or RIC-style revolver.

Since it runs only 24 seconds and the revolver is seen so unclear, I'm not sure that a page would be appropriate.

But I have an idea: maybe we can make a single page for a collection of pre-1900 movies where firearms appear?

For a couple of reasons, no. Firstly, we do not allow short films and at 24 seconds this definitely falls into this category. Secondly, I dispute that possibility that anybody can make a reasonable ID of the weapon based on the quality of those screenshots. It was for exactly these reasons that we did not allow a page for "Sherlock Holmes Baffled" that another user wanted to create a few months ago.
