Is "100 Rifles" on the list? A 1969 movie with Burt Lancaster and Raquel Welch.

Seriously, a movie with Raquel and Krags, could life get any better?

They are if you swear upon the almighty Krag, that you hold holy, that they are. 

Another Krag film to the list.

Check out this website for what the Krag Jorgensen was being used for in the movie "100 Rifles". Scan down and it is the Model 1896 portrayed as being used. Unfortunately, I don't believe Raquel is seen in the movie actually handling a Krag.

The full length movie is on YouTube.

Culpeper, I am going to brag once again, but.....
The following link to YouTube is a moving picture of "President McKinley's Funeral Cortege at Buffalo, NY", part 1. Lead by the Buffalo Police Department and then Company I of the 14th Regiment, which my great grandfather was a part of. Not a movie, but the actual thing. They are carrying the M1898 Krag Jorgensen. Perhaps you can make a stretch of things and include this very early film on your list.

I would love to include the early Edison films but I think we can all agree the Krags are expected to be found in real life contemporary films of its time and not fictional films twenty years after the Span-Am War such as Chaplin's films or later productions.

But Hey!  You can run down the actualities and make a new list to parrallel this list.
