Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story - Jason Scott Lee (1993) - Nai Chung, Ma On Shan

Off we go to Thailand to catch up with the filming of The Big Boss (that's Fists of Fury if you are from the US). Except that we don't travel to Thailand but just head out into the New Territories to a place called Nai Chung. We've visited here before, sometime ago now, with Shaw's Shaolin Temple but this time we are a few yards back from the mudflat and on an area of land next to Nai Chung village. The hills in the back are the same ones we can see at the end of The Prodigal Son (and a host of other films according to Andi's Hong Kong Movie Tours blog).

We can almost exactly see where we are because the top screencap shows that the camera accidentally caught a village house in the bottom right part of the picture. This house is actually No.22 Nai Chung village and still looks the same today (although I don't have a picture of it).

Anyway, I'm sure that this isn't the first time this area has stood-in for Thailand and I think we may see it in a later blog whenever I get around to looking at Jean-Claude Van Damme's original outing as Kickboxer.
