Thanks for the Laugh with the Murphy Wallbed, Charlie Chaplin

In 1916, Charlie Chaplin made a historic black and white silent film about his trials with a Murphy Wallbed. The movie, titled, One A.M., was Chaplin’s first solo movie, except for a brief appearance by a taxi driver.

Murphy Wallbed takes Center Stage in One A.M.

Arriving home late at night, Chaplin struggles with preparing his upright Murphy Wallbed for repose. He antics include being unable to keep the wallbed from remaining down, being caught between the frame and the wallbed, being under the wallbed, and tripping over the frame of the wallbed.

Created to make us laugh, Chaplin remains desperate in his attempt to position the Murphy bed for sleep.  Taking center stage, the Murphy Bed almost becomes a character in the film, and Chaplin is resigned to give up his attempt to sleep in his Murphy Wallbed. The audience is entertained, and One A.M. becomes a signature Charlie Chapman film.

The Calamity of the Murphy Wallbed is only for the Audience

What Happy Customers Say

  • I have had the pleasure of doing business at the Costa Mesa Wallbeds and More on two separate occasions. I was invited to visit the store by appointment which assured me Roger’s full attention and respect for my time. I was able to ask questions and see a demonstration of how to open and close the beds. We discussed what I could expect from the delivery and installation personnel. Roger was outgoing and helpful in every way. The pieces I bought are comfortable, attractive, and a great solution to space issues.

  • We were so happy to find a wall bed place so close to home – from the moment I called to ask questions to the time we went and looked and bought the staff and everyone involved was wonderful. The time it took to get it and the delivery and set up was wonderful. I would do it again.
