I Spy (TV Series) - Robert Culp (1965) - Man Mo Temple, Sheung Wan

Another scene from the episode Dragon's Teeth. No surprises about this location really seeing as the last one we looked at was 50 yards away on Square Street.

But of course it's much better the see the whole area via one of AP's excellent photo stitches. Once again many thanks to AP. From this quick glimpse I would say that at the far right is the construction of the building that currently stands there and a quick look on Centamap reveals that the building (Tai Hing Building) was issued its occupational permit in 1967, which kind of fits in quite well i.e. 2 years after this series was made. The film buffs amongst you will know it was this building's predecessor which was used as the external shots of the Nam Kok Hotel in The World of Suzie Wong (filmed 1959, released 1960). And here is a similar angle from Jackie Chan's The Protector.
