Sir Roger Moore and Carole Bouquet plan their next steps in front of the picturesque Vlacherna Monastery. She wants revenge for the death of her parents and he wants to save the world as always. This location is of course a tourist hotspot, so I was happy to get a photo without passers-by in the picture.   ..read more

The Clones of Bruce Lee - Jardine House

by
11M ago
The Clones of Bruce Lee is a cinematic summit meeting of three fakes: Bruce Le, Bruce Lai and Dragon Lee. To be fair, the film's title already makes it clear that no real Bruce Lee is to be expected. As compensation you get to see the real Jardine House ..read more

Red Fists - Victoria Peak

by
11M ago
Red Fists aka Perfect Partners aka Joint Investigation, starring Yu Rong-Guang, is one of those many Hong Kong films that begin with the world famous view from Victoria Peak. As the spongy screenshot shows, Red Fists is also one of those many Hong Kong films that don't have a high definition release. But as a fan of these films I am used to eye pain. Victoria Peak (552m) is Hong Kong Island's highest hill, but only ranked 29th in all of Hong Kong. 1st place goes to Tai Mo Shan (957m), which is located in the New Territories ..read more

The Former Police Marine Headquarters Compound (completed in 1884) is a declared monument as it is one of the four oldest surviving government buildings in Hong Kong. Of course, it's striking exterior has often been used as a filming location. If you want to see it from the other side then check out my posts about She Shoots Straight ..read more

Way of the Dragon - Colosseum, Rome

And here we are, last but not least, at the most famous filming location from Way of the Dragon. I have to honestly say that due to the many visitors and the partially cordoned off areas within the Colosseum, I didn't really get into the mood for picture-hunting. I took a handful of photos and apart from that we just walked around in classic tourist mode. Since the actual fight scene was shot at the Golden Harvest Studio, as is well known, the film scenes shot here are basically just a tourist tour. However, the two tourists are Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris, and of course that makes things a bit ..read more

Way of the Dragon - Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, Rome

by

Another location where the rush of visitors makes it impossible to take a good photo without countless tourists in the frame. On the other hand, I was just another tourist myself. The Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi ("Fountain of the Four Rivers") features four water-spouting river gods representing four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority has spread. The Nile representing Africa, the Danube representing Europe, the Ganges representing Asia, and the Rio de la Plata representing the Americas. The open hearted lady who courts Bruce Lee in this scene is introduced as "Ital ..read more

Way of the Dragon - Via Campania, Rome

Bruce and Nora arrive. The entrance area of Bruce's former movie-accommodation now looks pretty run down. As soon as Tang Lung is gone, everything gets out of hand. I had some problems with the backlight in the first photo, but since i only had my cell phone with me to take the picture my technical possibilities were quite limited. Via Campania runs parallel to Corso d'Italia where one of the driving scenes was filmed (see one of my last posts). Both streets are separated by the old city walls.  ..read more

Way of the Dragon - Piazza del Colosseo, Rome

by

The entire drive at the beginning of the film is like a sightseeing tour of Rome. And no real tourist would skip the Colosseum. The camera follows Nora and Bruce as they drive along Piazza del Colosseo and then pass Arco di Costantino (Arch of Constantine). As you can see, the street layout has changed significantly over the past 50 years. Wait a second. Released in 1972, Way of the Dragon is now half a century old. Bruce Lee's charisma and his influence on today's sports enthusiasts and their philosophies easily stand the test of time ..read more
