  1. I was there 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 18th 2016

    I visited Hong Kong in 1961 and visited the areas where the movie was filmed, you can see in this film what old Hong Kong looked like. The outside of the bar was a building on of all names, Hollywood rd. The taipac and jumbos floating restraunts were in a differs location then and a small bum boat with a young girl would take you out to the restraunt, all the time asking ( you want to meet my sister? ). If you watch the movie you will be amazed and get the felling of what old Hong Kong was like ( fo goodness sakes ). Great movie.
