Ferry to Hong Kong - Curt Jurgens (1959) - Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong

Like many foreign films made over here, the harbour usually features in one way or another because, I guess, it's a defining image of what Hong Kong is.

The opening titles of Ferry to Hong Kong give us a 1959 view from the western end of the harbour looking at the Central, Wanchai and beyond.  These aren't hi-res screen caps but look closely enough and you may see some famous landmarks such as Government House (low centre right, top picture) and HSBC and BOC buildings. Unfortunately the view is rather spoilt by the opening credits splashed across the screen.
