Former Marine Police HQ, Tsim Sha Tsui in “Soldier of Fortune” (1955)

“Another international production filmed in HK the same year as Love is a Many-Splendored Thing. This one starred Clark Gable as a wealthy ex-mercenary enlisted to help a maiden in distress rescue her estranged husband from the clutches of the evil Chinese Communists. Perhaps making more use of the sights (and sites!) and sounds of HK, the film provides a great insight into HK at the time.

 Here is a couple of the scenes filmed at the Former Marine Police HQ in TST - of course now turned into the very expensive Hullet Hotel and adjoining naff 1881 Heritage mall.”
