    Were both black and white?  I saw one I rather liked around 1950.  At the
    time I didn't know my firearms very well, but I was impressed by the way
    one man could essentially prevent repairs and tie up a whole ship.  Was it
    Lee Enfield vs. Mauser?  Also, when I thought about the movie, I had
    mentally placed the action in the Falklands; maybe I didn't even know
    about the Galapagos back then.
    Thanks for reminding me.
