Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Ah, I remember the Wirtshaus im Spessart, I had a book with Wilhelm Hauff stories and saw the movie. I assume you also saw this version:

Das Wirtshaus im Spessart (Film) - Wikipedia

Das Wirtshaus im Spessart ist eine deutsche Filmkomödie von Kurt Hoffmann aus dem Jahr 1958, frei nach der gleichnamigen Vorlage Das Wirtshaus im Spessart von Wilhelm Hauff aus dem Jahre 1827. Die Uraufführung erfolgte am 15. Januar 1958.

But I can not remember the 'human bed warmer'.

Yep, that's the first of three films.

Mit Liselotte Pulver in der weiblichen Hauptrolle wurde der Film ein Sensationserfolg. Diesem folgten dann noch die Filme Das Spukschloss im Spessart (1960) und Herrliche Zeiten im Spessart (1967) ebenfalls mit Liselotte Pulver. Diese Filme waren nicht mehr an die Motive von Wilhelm Hauff angelehnt.

I saw all of them, but that was up to 20 years ago; the book was more than 15 years ago too, and I don't remember a single plot element. I do recall that the bed-warmer was a nice maid some guest finds in his or her room, but can't tell if (a) I read it, (b) it was an intro for the Liselotte Pulver character in the movies, (c) it was a supporting role in the movies.

I loved those movies, and would equally really love to see them again -  I tried but have not really found them in Britain - Will have to buy in Germany on my next visit to amazon...

Anything with Wolfgang Neuss, really.

Which one was the movie where they are very angry at the police or the courts, slam the door and then plaster falls down from underneath the eagle, revealing a swastika?

You guys remember all those details, I think I will have to watch those movies again.

PeWi, try amazon.de you can order them there. I am not sure if the free shipping applies.

I remember that scene, but I can only guess that it was the second (when the robbers return as ghosts in the present day).
