This film is set in Hong Kong, between 1949 and the start of the Korean War in 1950. It was filmed a few years later, and released in 1955.
As the opening credits roll, we're given an aerial view of Hong Kong Harbour. The camera starts above Green Island, then flies east along the harbour-front towards Central.
Then we move to street-level (02:00), following an ambulance along Queen's Road Central, past Central Market (02:13), then up until we arrive at the hospital.
This is one of the main locations of the movie, as Dr Han Suyin, the female lead, works there.
Later we hear Suyin tell an old schoolmate: "I'm now a resident doctor here at the Victoria Hospital" (24:57). The view of the ambulance turning off the main road (02:28) does look similar to the area near the old Victoria Hospital, but when we see the building at 02:45, or from above at 42:15, it looks quite different from the photo I saw of the Victoria Hospital.
Does anyone know which building was used as the hospital for filming?
