The Music Man (1962)

Musical; Starring Robert Preston and Shirley Jones; Directed by Morton DaCosta

A conman (Preston) comes to River City in Iowa to sell musical instruments and band uniforms. The Iowa folks are suspicious of him, and with good reason. The Buffalo Bills barbershop group performs memorably throughout the film. Marion the Librarian (Jones) takes an interest in the conman, and he in her. This is a funny, enjoyable musical with great songs and performances.
