That Man Bolt - Fred Williamson (1973) - Ching Chun Koon, Tuen Mun

Used briefly in the introduction of Enter the Dragon (see here), in That Man Bolt we get a glimpse of the area behind the large pai lau (also known as a pai fong - they're the large ornamental gateways that are seen in temples and some more established villages).

Believe it or not, that nice hilly area at the back of the first picture is now a 6-lane highway called the Tsing Tan Road! Tuen Mun has undergone a massive change into a 'New Town' with most of its bay reclaimed and a whole bunch of housing estates being built. I guess we should be thankful that this place has remained fairly unchanged in the last 40 years even if everything around it has been transformed.

Look, it's Geoffrey again!

The Lions by the archway have been moved, but other than that everything else looks pretty much the same, including that small pavilion in the bottom picture. Anyway, now you have two reasons to take the trip out there.
