The Road Sign of the Cross

I’ve watched HAROLD AND MAUDE so many times I am an actual item on the disc menu but never noticed until freeze-framing this shot below, in preparation to showing the next scene in a class, that they have special religious paint marks for parking spaces outside the church.

Fortunately I had an American student (hi Stella) who was able to confirm my suspicion that this is not an actual thing and that it’s just the filmmakers being whimsical. Pretty funny and pretty subtle if you’re not looking for it.
