The Yin and Yang of Mr Go - James Mason (1970) - Lockhart Road, Wanchai

After being duped into believing someone wants to publish his writing, Bridges heads out to celebrate with his new publisher - in reality a US agent. They hit the town in several places including the Ocean Bar that used to be at 88-92 Lockhart Road (thanks to Doug). It's a shame the picture quality isn't any better because I'm a big fan of these old neon signs.

The reason the top picture is rotated is because of Burgess Meredith trying to convey the drunkeness of the night with skewed camera angles.


We also get a quick glimpse of the nearby Neptune Bar sign (75-79 Lockhart Road).

  1. The Ocean Bar was a big, busy bar then!

  2. See Pinky Yuns Tattoo place under the Neptune sign? He was a very well-known tattooist for many years, both in HK and later in California.
