Les Tribulations d'un Chinois en Chine - Jean-Paul Belmondo (1965) - Queen's Road Central, Hong Kong

This film has some great shots around Central in the mid-1960's. Here is one taken from battery Path (I think) overlooking Queen's Road Central towards both the Bank of China and the HSBC building.

It's not often we get a view of this side of the old HSBC building (demolished and replaced by the current building in 1984) and when it first cropped up on this blog (back when I was doing That Man Bolt) I wasn't sure if it was actually in Hong Kong. I know better now, of course, Look at the lower right of the bottom picture and it looks like that might be the stone wall on the steps up to Battery Path.
