Coming along in the summer of 1962, four and a half years after the Broadway opening, the film version of The Music Man appeared in an era when Hollywood was more likely to be faithful to stage musicals, rather than dramatically altering them, as had been the practice in the past.

I was in the pit band at my highschool where the musical was (of course) "The Music Man". Let me just say that after spending weeks practicing and playing and learning this music inside and out, how much more I appreciate it. It is so much more challenging than one would think and there are so many cues that have to be just perfect. The way the original cast and band made all this seem so effortless is a testament to thier true talent. I thouroughly enjoy the play and the music, and can honestly say I will be singing "Shipoopi" for the rest of my life! Jilly Clyde!!!

The music was good like the broadway show.I also liked the movie songs. Robert Preston, and Shirley Jones make good music together! I liked ''Pick a little Talk a little'', and ''Seventy Six Trombones'', also ''Gary Indiana'', also ''Ya got trouble''. The music was so enchanting.

I first saw "The Music Man" when I was a kid about Ron Howards age. I deveoped a big crush on Monique Vermont, who played the part of "Amarylis" and would perform the opening train sequence for anyone willing to listen. I'm now 50 (and have seen it at least 50 times) and almost know the entire film line for line. I'll never grow tired of it. Robert Preston was created for this role. The Buffalo Bills and Shirley Jones with the added 'counterpoint' tunes still cause me to shake my head in dis-belief. This is a special musical that I feel opened the door to those that followed. My highest rating.

I love it, period! I bought it and it was excellent, although the original Broadway cast was much different. I was in a tiny little play for it, I'm in the St. Elizabeth Chorale and it was an opprotunity to participate in something great. Five, I say, one, two, three, four, five stars! Stars that mark the difference between good movie and a bad! All of their songs are stuck in my head. Winthrop who was portrayed by Ronnie Howard was great along with all the others.
