China Rose - George C. Scott (1983) - Monte Fort, Macau

Speaking of Monte Fort, the US Embassy in Canton is portrayed by the rather fine Portuguese colonial building inside the Fort walls. The building is still around and now forms the museum, however, in one of the Macau Govt's less inspired moments of heritage preservation, this whole facade was remodeled. The windows were kept but the rather nice footbridge was removed and the detail from the window frames looks to have been removed. It's a big shame because the building looks too modern now.
