Shatter - Stuart Whitman (1974) - Lockhart Road, Wanchai

Our first glimpse of Peter Cushing (who was, coincidentally, recently recreated via CGI for the Star Wars: Rogue One film) as a rather nasty Hong Kong copper is when he gets out of a car on Lockhart Road in Wanchai. There are some key establishment signs that tell us where we are located. Including the San Francisco Topless bar, Butterfly Club Topless, Boston Bar (was next door to the Butterfly) and Ocean Bar.

For a great collection of Wanchai pictures at around the same era (including some very similar signs seen here) I recommend Doug's extensive collection of slides and bar cards over on Flickr. Links below.
