Ein Sarg aus Hong Kong - Heinz Drache (1964) - Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

A fair bit of the story is based around a brother and sister who live in Repulse Bay, however, the film makers cheated a little bit as you will see in the post after this one. In the meantime, here is a nice view of the beach and surrounding area - including the Repulse Bay Hotel - before rampant development.

The camera focuses on the Repulse Bay Towers/Mansions (last seen on this blog in Spiderman) and so we are led t believe - courtesy of the establishing shot - that this is where Drache and his buddy are staying. This is a bit odd because we are later treated to views from within the grounds of the Repulse Bay itself. If you think you recognise the top picture below, you do. But this is proof that that particular shot was indeed filmed for this movie because the camera pans to the right to reveal our heroes.

 And what is that we can see in the background of the lower shot? It's Eucliffe.
