The Yin and Yang of Mr Go - James Mason (1970) - Hong Kong Cricket Club, Central

So just a few short weeks after seeing the old cricket club featured in Les Tribulations d'un Chinois en Chine it pops up again (around 4 years later) in a more blurry version of itself. In this film though we get a quick glimpse of the scoreboard (how exciting...).

Behind Jeff Bridges in the second picture is the old Hong Kong Club, but by then its annex building had been knocked down and replaced by Sutherland House. This was the building that had the large green neon advert for Bayer for all those years. You can just see the corner of it at the right hand side.

Finally, in the lower picture with James Mason you can make out the Murray Barracks building at the background sitting on the site now occupied by the I.M Pei Bank of China Building.
