Bruce Lee & I - Betty Ting Pei (1976) - Ede Road, Kowloon Tong

From the intro to the film when we see 'Bruce' (i.e. Danny Lee) driving in his Merc up to see Betty at her flat on Beacon Hill Road. In a surprise for the movie industry, the route we see on the way is pretty much as it should be in reality - and here the car goes up Ede Road on the way to Beacon Hill Road, passing Ede Terrace on the way - that's the retaining wall with the Chinese characters on that we can see in the screen grab below.

Despite quite a significant amount of development in this area in the past few years, much of it ongoing, both Ede Terrace and its neighbour, Orion Court (the gateway of which you can see up there past the terrace on the left) are still around and are still some of the more desirable places to live thanks to the huge amount of space inside the apartments - built when space in HK was less of an issue for property developers.
