Sunset - Paul Chin Pei (1971) - Castle Peak Hotel, Tuen Mun

Going back to 1971 and we have the tragi-classic Sunset starring David Chiang's brother Paul. The film starts with some guys in a car on the hunt for some girls and they follow a car into what was the Castle Peak Hotel just off Castle Peak Road in Tuen Mun.

We also get to see part of the famous circular entrance gate as well as a few sneaky scenes filmed inside the hotel grounds. I'm sure there are people reading this who ate or even stayed at this now defunct hotel.

As the cars drive off we get to see the other side of the main entrance onto what was then a two lane Castle Peak Road. The road was later widened to its present size (a development project that was responsible for Dragon Villa losing its original front walls and doors).

In case you are wondering, I'm not sure when it was demolished but on the same site today is a development called "Castle Peak Villas". Click on the location info below to see where this is.
