Back in 1963, there was a tramway that passed right in front of the American University of Beirut. I found some old footage a while ago that you can see [here]. I always thought Bliss Street should be a car-free street and I hope this happens one day.

PS: It doesn’t look like they are taking good care of the tree as it has considerably shrunk.

Le spie uccidono a Beirut (Also known as Secret Agent Fireball), which means The spies Kill In Beirut, is a 1965 Italian spy movie that is inspired by the James Bond series and was filmed in Italy, Beirut, Germany and Paris in France. Richard Harrison stars in this movie as agent Bob Fleming 077. I found the whole thing on YouTube and went through it quickly to find the scenes filmed in Beirut.

I would have watched the whole movie but I only found the Italian version online. Le Spie Uccidono A Beirut is rated 5.5/10 on IMDb.
