    Default Ukuleles in film and tv

    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?

    Ahh! That’s what it is, I wondered if it might be but I’ve never seen one quite like that before.

    The Sodastream commercials here in the U.S. feature a ukulele.

    I am not able to use the link feature since it thinks I am posting spam, but here are some urls.

    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.

    Ah, a classic!
    Love the movie, love the song, love the scene!
    If your uke is too loud, your neighbours are wrong.
