The other night I was watching ‘The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes’, a 1970s movie starring Robert Stephens in the titular role. In one scene the cerebral duo attend an opera ‘after party’, in which a band can be seen playing, what I took to be, ukuleles. One of which looks extremely uncomfortable to play.

Apart from the obvious movies (GF movies and the like) in which other films and tv programmes have you spotted a uke?

The big one is a balalaika; can't tell what the others are.

I am not able to use the link feature since it thinks I am posting spam...

Don't use the Post Quick Reply button, use the Go Advanced button and in that window use the Submit Reply button. Always works for me.

Gracie Allen, wife and comedy partner with George Burns plays a song on the ukulele followed by a great dance number by Eleanor Powell.
