The Last Grenade - Stanley Baker (1970) - Hanoi Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Baker's comrades (which included very young looking John Thaw and Julian Glover) head out to a pub for the night. Unfortunately their nice little drink is disturbed by the enemy (Alex Cord) and they escape out of the front door onto Hanoi Road.

 There are a couple of clues as to the location. The first one is the white sign in the upper right of the lower picture. Look closely and you can see it says "Siu Lam Kung". We've come across this place before courtesy of I Spy. Also spot the sign behind it which mentions "Nancy's Shoes". If you look at the bottom picture of this post (no, I mean the picture at the bottom, not the picture with the bottom!) you'll see that we are in pretty much the same location used in The Man with the Golden Gun. Another confirmation by the fact that the Kam Lung shop is visible in our top picture above.

Anyway, the guys escape in a cab and drive north out of Hanoi onto Carnarvon Road. It's a bit dark, mind you, so not much to see.
