Scenic Sunday #104: A Many-Splendored Thing

Repulse Bay Beach, Hong Kong. June, 1987.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

I’m not sure how many of you are old enough to remember the 1955 film “Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing”.  The film was set and filmed in Hong Kong.  When I visited Hong Kong in 1987 our tour guide stopped at this overlook above Repulse Bay Beach.  One scene from the film was shot at the overlook while other scenes were shot on the beach you can see below.

The movie didn’t make as big an impression on me as the song of the same title, but it was still interesting to be at a place where part of the movie was shot.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

    That is a great scenic view. I haven’t seen the movie either, but with those kind of settings the movie must be definitely memorable.

    I loved the melody of that song and it is now flitting through my brain and probably will be doing that all day.
