Not the most convincing paste-up job.

A wet, but photogenic, bit of Scotland.
Jean-Louis Trintignant comes out of a newsagents towards the end of Alain Robbe-Grillet's Trans-Europe Express (1966).

In the window behind him a whole pile of Belgian comic books - the only ones I can identify off the top of my head are:
Top row 3rd from left
Couv_118.jpg

Second row 3rd
Couv_18734.jpg

(The lettering on the top is different because that may be a Flemish edition.)
+ 4th

There must be an analogous shot in A Bout de Souffle, quite apart from Jean Seaberg selling the International Herald Tribune to passing Parisian motorists.

I tried to identify some of the ones not identified in the first posting & struck out, so way to go, y'all.

The middle book on the lowest shelf is clearly JACKSON something, but searching under JACKSON MANHUNT, which seemed to be a possibility, strikes out.

Amazing spotting going on here. What's the Ben Hecht book on the middle shelf?
