Gad, I never noticed this before, but it’s been quite awhile since I saw this movie!

Ah, Hollywood. As so often happens, they got this one wrong. I double checked my "flip top". The lid of a Flintridge does not open as far as the one shown in the picture. (did they break the lid to get the shot?) And, even if you got a photo into the lid, It would not close properly, since the lid closes very snugly onto the main body of the case. But, a fun scene showing a very collectible Hamilton. Thanks Adam!

Surprise! Look what Shanghai Lily buys for the man she loves (Clive Brook) at the end of the movie, after the Flintridge was stolen by a Chinese warlord...
