In the 1956 movie 'Carousel,' the villain Jigger (Cameron Mitchell) plays a gaudy-looking Anglo in the clambake scene. The Anglo looks like a particularly cheesy Italian job with chrome corners and a red-and-white gazillion-fold bellows, and Jigger pumps it widely and wildly without touching a button. :rolleyes: There should have been a cautionary subtitle, "No actual concertina was harmed in filming this scene."

Further news on the concertina player in the Frost Tv detective program.

 

Series "A Touch of Frost" with David Jason.

Year 2002.

Title "Mistaken Identity" a double episode. Had to wait until the next week to see the titles.

Walter, a tramp with pram and dog. Is played by, Barry Jason.

Doesn't look as though he is really playing the concertina. Just acting.

..............was watching the movie "Oliver " with Mark Lester & Ron Moody and saw a nice looking English. Raised ends; more Lachenal-like than Wheatstone. Loved watching it again......Ron Moody & Shani Wallis were terrific, Jack Wild had a sad life and Mark Lester is the self-proclaimed father of Micharl Jackson's child ! Who knew.....

Earlier this evening on UK TV, Catherine Cookson's 'The Black Candle' from 1991 includes Alistair Anderson on concertina as part of a dance band.

 

 

 

 

A couple of sitings over the last month. First one, during a film version of Heidi (!) which was on over Xmas. Then this week, the first episode of the new series of Being Human on BBC3 showed a quick glimpse of a concertina in the final scene.
