Filming on Trams 電車‧映畫戲

Filming of 'Shanghai Surprise' in Catchick Street
Standard

This might be the ever first time to closing a street for filming. An unidentified tram masqueraded as “Shanghai Tramways car 22″ for the film Shanghai Surprise, starring Madonna and Sean Penn by Shaw Brothers Studios. Initially it was planned to close Catchick Street for filming early in the morning on 12 February 1986, the Chinese New Year of the Tiger.  Unfortunately there is lack of slides of the film showing the shots of the tram itself.
Precedent films with HK trams are “Rouge” 《胭脂扣》 in 1987 and “Lust, Caution” 《色‧戒》 in 2007, featured in Post-war and Pre-war styles, respectively.

相信這是首次因配合電影拍攝而須封閉街道。1986年2月12日 (踏入虎年第四日) 早上,由邵氏電影公司攝製,國際巨星麥當娜與辛潘主演的電影《上海驚奇》在港開拍,一架電車化身成上海年代的22號,令吉席街需要封閉,場面墟陷。

近期以香港的電車作場景的電影有1987年《胭脂扣》及2007年《色‧戒》,分別呈現戰後和戰前款式的電車。

The blurry circled watermark near the rear gate, guesstimating it was 126.

這架上海款式電車的真身仍是個謎,但估計是126號。
