Game of Death - Bruce Lee (1978) - Kowloon Funeral Parlour, Maple Street

Not only was the film exploitative enough to insert real footage of Lee's funeral at the Maple Street funeral parlour, but it looks as though the 1978 film crew went back to the same location for some authentic reproduction. The first screengrab is from the 1973 funeral, the second is from 1978 with Colleen Camp stumbling out of the same place in a daze as she still believes Lo to be really dead.

Although often referred to as the Maple Street parlour, the entrance (which is behind the flower banners in the lower picture) is actually located on the corner of Bedford Road and Tai Kok Tsui Road and is just a stone's throw from Bruce's old school - St Xaviers.
