Ein Sarg aus Hong Kong - Heinz Drache (1964) - Castle Peak Road, Kowloon

Here's one I forget to post several weeks ago. It is a car-based scene in Ein Sarg aus Hongkong with the three actors driving along (for real, no crappy back projection for this film) Castle Peak Road. This road is one of those long ones that goes on to form a large part of Route 9 that encircles the New Territories. However, the particular section we are looking at here is not far from its starting point (or end point, I guess, seeing as it is only eastbound traffic along this section) down in the Cheung Sha Wan part of Sham Shui Po District.

The top picture shows us a small section of the road just west of the junction with Tonkin Street, and the lower picture shows us that very same junction. The zig-zag style decoration of the building at the back of the second picture is where the current Hing Lung Building (202 to 210 Castle Peak Road) stands today. You can vageuly see the wall of the Tonkin Street nullah behind Heinz Drache's head as well. The nullah was covered up only recently (about 3 or 4 years ago).
