Description The moon rises from the horizon and makes a face. A small body attaches itself to the head and the hands start to play a guitar. It then sinks slowly back below the horizon. Percy Honri acts as the ukelele-playing moon, which formed part of his 'Concordia' act, a musical show. This film was made as an advertisement for the show and may have been used as an 'entr'acte' film, to cover a costume change.
