Sleeping with a piece of movie history.


Do the famous six degrees of separation apply to furniture, as well as people? I wore my Juno T-shirt to church last week, and one of my fellow parishioners spotted it and told me that her son happens to sleep in the car-shaped bed that we see in Paulie Bleeker’s bedroom in that film. I can’t remember exactly how my friend got the bed, but I do know that the film was shot here in Vancouver, so it wouldn’t have been too hard to cross paths with this item, and she said the bed had come with a tag, presumably left by the props department, identifying it as “Paulie Bleeker’s bed”. (I asked her if she got the hamburger-shaped telephone, too, and she said no, she didn’t.) I asked my friend if she could send me a picture of the bed for my blog, and today, I received this:

The Brazilian Moses movie is big, but not quite that big

Oscar nominee Rooney Mara may star in Mary Magdalene
