Heisser Hafen Hongkong - Horst Frank (1962) - 41a Conduit Road, Midlevels

Most people will recognise this building as the one that stood in for the hospital in Love is a many-Splendored Thing, with Jennifer Jones running up the terraced hillside at the back of the property. In this film it stands in for itself - as the Foreign Correspondents Club. Before it was the FCC, it was a private villa, called The Fairview, owned by the Mok family.

We don't get to see quite as much of the place as we did in the other film but seeing as the place has long since been confined to history, any glimpse is a bit of a treat for nostalgia fans.
