|Proto-point surf of California dreams; birthplace of hotdogging; glamorous symbol of the world's imagined California lifestyle; spawning ground of the surf-caper; one-time home to Gidget, Moondoggie and the great Kahuna (both Hollywoods fantasy version and the real-life people); site of The Wall and The Pit-a place where surfing still centers its attention on huge south swells.
Frontline Video's one-hour video opus is hosted by Corky Carroll and incorporates classic oldie footage, fresh interviews of legendary characters, some contemporary action, clips from Beach Blanket flicks, and surfin' tunes by The Beach Boys, Surfraiders and Surfaris into a bouncy and endearing collage that attemps to define and capture the elusive spirit of this ancient Chumash Indian village site. Real estate values have gone up since then, now that the likes of Johnny Carson, Bruce Jenner and Farrah Fawcett walk their dogs along the point. The Legends of Malibu tells how the Hollyglitz invaded this surf beach and how the spirit of its early riders somehow survive. This one-hour home video is a landmark in itself!
