The Magnum Desert Eagle handgun’s unique, triangular-barreled profile makes it perfect for highly stylized film violence. In turn, this exposure, none of it paid for by the brand, is invaluable. Its (maybe phallic?) appearance also makes it the favorite for heaving-bosoms heaving handguns roles. (Read my interview with Desert Eagle founder and CEO Jim Skildum. The brand also won 2008′s Product Placement Awards Lifetime Achievement Honor).
Each Friday I will try to feature a new Desert Eagle scene.
This week, a special look at film posters that have featured the Desert Eagle.
