Recently there was a thread about ukulele appearances in Pixar movies. Along the same lines, I just found this interesting list on amazon.com of 20 (non-Pixar) movies that feature characters who play the ukulele and I thought I'd share it.
A few of the films are famous (Marilyn Monroe is an ukulele player in "Some Like It Hot," and Steve Martin "lip synchs" the ukulele in "The Jerk," for example), and Buster Keaton plays the ukulele in three of the listed films, but I'd forgotten that there's an ukulele player in Warren Beatty's "Reds" and that Mia Farrow's character in "The Purple Rose of Cairo" is an ukulele player. Interestingly, there are no George Formby movies listed. Anyway, I just thought it might be fun to have a look at this list, which is certainly not exhaustive. Any other movies with characters who play the ukulele worth mentioning?
