Link to commons[edit]

The link works fine on the Swedish wiki, not here? Why? Hafspajen (talk) 23:11, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Because it should say just Rumskullaeken, not Category:Rumskullaeken, since "Category" is added by the commonscat-template. But I've fixed it, so the link works now. Thomas.W talk to me 00:00, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Location for film scenes[edit]

Having seen the movie many years ago I was certain that sex scenes in I Am Curious (Yellow) were shot inside the hollow trunk of the tree, not in the branches, so I managed to get hold of a copy of the film, and yes, at ~1h28m and a couple of minutes on we see them inside the upward open hollow trunk of the tree, not in the branches. If you look at the first image in the gallery you actually see the location, since it, judging by what you see in the film, was shot inside the hole in the trunk you see in that image. I'll see if I can find a reliable secondary source for it, but until then I think it should stand as it is, even with only the film as such as a source. The film is very "tame" BTW, with less nudity and sex than in an average mainstream movie today, which shows how the moral standards have declined changed since 1967.

Ah I see - I went looking for how exactly the tree was used, and put my finds in the article; however, the scenario is cut off at that point in Google Books and it's quite possible that they move from the branches down into the trunk. A source would be good, though. Yngvadottir (talk) 20:43, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
The details of the film itself, not the scenes with the tree, dont belong in this article. the controversy of the film doesnt revolve around the tree, nor does the court case.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 05:25, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Well, we tought it does, actually several editors. This was also the DYK hook, fact from Rumskulla oak that appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 1 December 2013 :Did you know... that sex scenes in the controversial 1967 film I Am Curious (Yellow) were shot inside the Rumskulla oak, an oak tree that is more than 1,000 years old? ... Maybe Thomas.W or Peter Isotalo can explain better why. It is an iconic Swedish film. Hafspajen (talk) 17:03, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Determining how central the scene in the tree was to the court case would be OR unless anyone actually mentions it in those terms in a source. But the added sentence about the movie is not excessive in my judgement; it helps show why the point is not mere trivia. In any case I've now moved the paragraph up into the History section, since it's not part of the National Park section and I don't think it merits its own heading.
