What is the Zabriskie Point Of It All
About 31 minutes into Michelangelo Antonioni’s film Zabriskie Point, our star Mark Frechette walks into Frank’s Liquor in Hawthorne, CA, where he strolls past the awesome array of late 1968 comic books you see above. I can make out The Avengers King-Size Special #2 (Cover date Sept. ’68), Captain America #107 (Nov. ’68) and Thor #157 (Oct. ’68) How many can you spot? The spread at the deli counter and impossibly large collection of Coke and booze signs is quite the eye delight, too. Sadly the giant hot dog is no longer on the front of the building. Zabriskie Point is available on DVD.
