Shanghai’s historic Bund waterfront Peace Hotel(ÂíåÂπ≥È•≠Â∫ó), where Noel Coward wrote “Private Lives“, has been illegally daubed with red Chinese characters by a crew filming a romantic movie, a state newspaper said on Friday.

It is not the first film crew to run into trouble with the Chinese authorities.

Earlier this month, China said it would fine the crew of “The Promise“, the country’s most expensive movie yet, for damaging the environment in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
