The Million Eyes of Sumuru - George Nader (1967) - Star Ferry Pier, Tsim Sha Tsui

Despite the fact that she runs down a pier in Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter, when the camera flicks over to her jumping on the ferry it is actually about a mile to the south at the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui. But can you spot the rather obvious continuity error?

The top picture shows the ferry that she is running to, and the bottom one shows the ferry she actually gets on board.

The Silver Star (top picture) seems to still be in service in Hong Kong. It was brought into service in 1965 so was fairly new when this film was made. The Radiant Star is a relative veteran of film and despite going out of service in 1971 we have seen it before on this blog courtesy of an appearance in The World of Suzie Wong.
