    There was a movie a quite a few years ago about Ma Barker, and her gang. I think Theressa Russell was in it. There was a scene where one of the boys had a ukulele, but never did play it.

    Last episode of Life on Mars, we see things concluding for Sam to the tune of Iz's Over the Rainbow. The choice of that song may be a giveaway as to what happens.

    Also there was a preview for some movie on tv that played a cover of that. Some lesser uke player on a lesser uke. Actually the quality of the uke sounds ok, the effects on it over done. Yes, effects. On this song of all songs. I love using effects, but that just ... ugh. And the strumming technique isn't so good but at least the guy's voice sounds crap.

    I'm glad the preview wasn't long.
