Supermen Against the Orient - Robert Malcolm (1973) - Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong

Although most of this film appears to have been filmed on studio sets, there are the odd moments when the crew ventured out to capture the real Hong Kong. This scene was taken at the eastern side of Shaukeiwan typhoon shelter.


The pointy hill at the back of the fourth screen grab is Devil's Peak. The buildings at the back are in the Cha Kwo Ling/Kwun Tong areas. You can still get to this spot today but you have to get to it through the (excellent) Museum of Coastal Defence. This section of the typhoon shelter is where the (supposed but probably not) old HMS Tamar anchor is sited. GoogleEarth has a fairly decent match - albeit greener and more built up.
