    I've also seen ukulele in in Get out (2017) movie.

    Besides, other music instrument are widely seen in films and TV shows dedicated to Christmas.

    Apart from the obvious movies (GF movies and the like) in which other films and tv programmes have you spotted a uke?
    Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain parents, maybe?
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    "Some Like it Hot"

    I bought a set of George Formby videos from Amazon. They use the PAL format, so if you use them in the USA, you'll need either a converter or a region-free DVD player.

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

    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!
