'The Music Man'

The Music Man

Rated G (Some mild sexual references but suitable for all ages)

My all-time favorite movie musical has it all – comedy, romance, crime, small-town gossip, gorgeous music, sensational dancing, great performers, a barbershop quartet, and, of course, that parade with 76 trombones and 110 cornets. Robert Preston repeats his stage triumph as con man "Professor" Harold Hill, who comes to Iowa to sell band instruments and Shirley Jones is Marian the Librarian, who does not trust him. Songs like "'Til There Was You," "Lida Rose," "Goodnight My Someone," and "Gary Indiana" make this one of the most joyously tuneful films ever made.
