Bons Baisers de Hong Kong - Les Charlots (1975) - Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

There's some nice colourful street scenes in this film including this brief look north up Nathan Road near the southern end. You can see the Holiday Inn sign which puts us in familiar tourist territory. Both Mirador Mansion and Chungking Mansions can be seen either side of the Holiday Inn - Chungking Mansions being closer to the camera..

Note the Royal paraphernalia draped on the lamp posts. Don't forget this film was made the same time as the Queen's 1975 trip to HK and utilises a lot of the footage from that for its own plot.
