Hello Bill,
You have to be in a certain mood to appreciate this film. When my wife was 8 months pregnant and almost could do nothing anymore she had so much fun watching it that it was a pleasure watching her!
The scenes with the player piano are in the first movie. After about 43 minutes. Nielsen is secretly in the office of the enemy. First he pushes a button at random and the player piano starts. He stops it after a few seconds. Then he puts by accidents a piece of paper on fire, everything starts to burn, panic, panic and accidently he pushes the player piano button again. Everything goes wrong now. Nielsen drops the precious vases, but the funny part is that they fall in time with the music. You hear the sound of breaking glass but if you listen closely you also hear two different pitched crash cymbals at the same time. like a circus drummer.
On youtube it is here :   


Kind regards,

Bert Brandsma
