To emphasize the importance of Cannes as a "movie" town, film references were scattered all over the place. There were many cardboard cutouts of famous characters from movies like Charlie's Angels, Star Wars, and Lara Croft Tomb Raider where you could stick your face in to become part of the scene. Rich made a menacing looking Jedi knight in his shades. I didn't fare so well as the third Angel. A pay telephone "booth" (probably one of the few remaining anywhere?) was mounted to the sculpture of a piece of film. A sculpture of Superman bursting through a brick wall can be found on a busy retail street.
Further in from the Boulevard de la Croisette were more reasonably priced retail stores including a fun one called Bathroom Graffiti. In there, we found colourful elves giving us the finger (reminiscent of Ai Weiwei's art pieces), a stuffed bear doing yoga, and John Lennon inspired "Peace" pillows featuring pug dogs.
