In my defense, I did see this as a stage production before the movie version. But now I'm so used to this one, I try to watch it here and there.

Robert Preston is The Music Man, the traveling, swindling salesman, who "gets his foot caught in the door", and can't rip off an off-beat town after getting attached to the people. Great music and characters and Mrs. Partridge (Shirley J... read more

Professor Harold Hill (Robert Preston) arrives in River City with a plan to make some money from the gullible citizens. He tells them he is organising a River City boy's band with the intention of leaving town with their money before the instruments arrive. He hasn't allowed for the fact that he will meet beautiful librarian Marian Paroo (Shirley Jones) and fall for her charms. Marian is at first ... read more

'The Music Man' is a great musical film based on the original musical. It's great to see Robert Preston as Harold Hill again! And he gives a great performance! The rest of the cast are also really good and the film looks great! It also brings us the classic songs "Wells Fargo Wagon", "Gary Indiana" and the iconic "76 Trombones", a great musical!

"Based on the hit Broadway musical, "The Music Man" concerns a con artist Harold Hill (Robert Preston) who poses as a band organizer, travels to River City, Iowa and, with his colleague Marcellus (Buddy Hackett), promises to form an all-boys marching band. During his plot, he woos a librarian Marian (Shirley Jones), who resents him at first, but gives in once Harold helps her youngest brother Winthrop (Ron Howard) overcome his lisp. As far to my knowledge, "The Music Man" is the go-to family musi"
