North Face Flag and Ski Gate Marker Vexilloids in Better Off Dead 1985

A North Face Flag appears in the 1980s teenage classic Better Off Dead 1985.  It has the North Face logo in green on a white background.  Another important vexilloid are the skiing gate markers.  In this case our hero Lane, played by John Cusack, is skiing through them.  

Better Off Dead was perfect 1980s cult classic loaded with campy quotable jokes.  It straddled the line of zany 80s comedy yet grounded itself with serious real tough to tackle life issues.  Cusack was not a part of the 1980s brat pack, but he surely carried his own weight living on making movies, up into the modern cell phone I-phone age.
