I Didn't Do It (1945)
[George Formby, Billy Caryll, Hilda Mundy, Gaston Palmer, Jack Daly]
Comedy crime film about an aspiring entertainer who comes down to London in search of fame and fortune, but soon must try to clear his name after being accused of a murder at his lodgings.
At 21 minutes, Gaston Palmer, as Le Grand Gaston, attempts to do the 8 spoons in 8 glasses trick, and fails. At 27 minutes, he attempts the trick again, after first balancing one of the spoons on his nose, and again fails. At 92 minutes, on stage during a great commotion at the film's climax, he attempts the trick a third time, and succeeds.
