The movie starts with the main character, played by Bruce Le (he also wrote and directed the film), fending off a bunch of bad guys outside the Shangri-La Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui. Given the number of triad attacks that go on around here the place is quite used to seeing some violence, real and otherwise.

Challenge of the Tiger - Bruce Le (1980) - Shangri-La Hotel, Tsim Sha Tsui
Moving on to the next film we have Challenge of the Tiger. Although supposedly an international production the quality is very much stuck in the naff semi-exploitative kung fu film genre of the 70's. Its redeeming features are the various locations and the appearance of our old friend Brad Harris as a bad guy called "Leopard" and Jon Benn in a quick uncredited cameo as a CIA honcho.
