The .41 was used in the filming of the first dirty Harry movie. The propmaster did not get the M-29 until after the shooting was finished. The opening sequence was filmed last, with the .44

That's a good trivia question that a lot of folks don't know.

IIRC, they used Model 58's for the movie. they have the same external appearance and dimensions as the Model 29.
