The Million Eyes of Sumuru - George Nader (1967) - Shaws Movietown Temple Set, Clearwater Bay

I'm in the process of going through The Vengeance of Fu Manchu and was just about to post about the temple set when I realised I had neglected to post the same location for The Million Eyes of Sumuru. So here it is. This set used to stand around where the Clearwater Bay ESF school currently stands near to the entrance to Movietown.

Incidentally, if you are a member of Facebook, you can see a picture of this set at the following link within the Hong Kong in the '60s group (well worth joining for some nice pictures of HK). The owner of the photo (Brian Avery) puts the date at either 1966 or 1967. Given the state the place is in I suspect it was before these films were made, so more likely 1966. But there is enough detail in the picture to see it is the same set and of course, those are the Shaw dormitories at the back.
