Suzie Wong film shoot a.

Photograph taken during filming of 'The World of Suzie Wong' film.  A serviceman in the Royal Air Force, stationed at R.A.F. Little Sai Wan took two photographs when he came across the film unit working at Aberdeen.  I bought the two images on eBay when I noticed that the star, William Holden was accompanied, not by Nancy Kwan, the eventual star but by Frances Nuyen.  Frances Nuyen had originally starred in the 1958 Broadway stage production of the story but while the 1960 film was being made she was replaced by Nancy Kwan.  I have given this and the accompanying photograph to Gwulo.  See Forum for more details.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Monday, February 1, 1960
