Robert Preston is good in the part of the Music Man, but does as much talking as singing in his "songs". Shirley Jones is wonderful, being the same actress from Oklahoma, Carousel, and others. Ron Howard sings his one and only song "Gary Indiana" like no one else his age could--priceless!

When watching the Music Man for the first time, you will see the difference in it from the other musicals. The difference is, it takes place in a town, which is small, and has not had anything exciting come there. This salesman comes, and charms the town, and even the librarian. The songs, are catchy, and very well known if you hear them. Like the famous one, ''Till There Was You.'' Which was made later by the Beatles. The reason why I took a star off, is because, I cannot stand the song ''Shapoopi''. I find it utterly anoying.

Reading the other reviews, no one seems to be focusing on the great barber shop quartet in the film and their contribution to its success. Playing the role of the city's councilmen attempting to get Prof. Hill's credentials, the group adds a constant musical background to the film that will have you bouncing in your seat during the movie. Their version of ''Lida Rose'' will have you humming it the next day, guaranteed. Robert Preston has never been better as con man/Professor Harold Hill, especially with his showstopping song, ''Trouble.'' Forget the TV version and see the original!

This is a movie that holds a special place in many people's hearts, and is a favorite of people who don't normally enjoy musicals...this must be because the story is so funny and the performances are still so fresh. The film is an accidental time capsule of sorts, as it depicts so beautifully the early part of twentieth century small-town life. Beautiful to see, hear and share.

Hello! Ok. I am 13 years old and The Music Man is my favorite musical of all time. I did it as a school play in May 2003. Since, then I've been in love with it. I really recomend it to anyone who likes musicals. If you saw the Disney version on ABC this one is A LOT better. Enjoy!

Definately one of my all time favorites - it can't be beat for excellance of performance, production values, and plain enjoyment. If you don't have a smile of your face at the end of this movie, you're probably dead!

I have seen The Music Man many times over and every time I watch I'm amazed at the talent and hard work that went into creating this remarkable movie. Every generation can watch this musical and appreciate the humor, wit and charm of America's best-loved con artist, Professor Harold Hill, as he steals the hearts and pocketbooks of River City, Iowa.

Yes, my friends, we got trouble. Right here in River City. Professor Harold Hill (the sensational Robert Preston) has come to sell musical instruments and uniforms and lessons, only he doesn't know one note from another. So what does he do? He makes trouble. Right here in River City. He makes trouble for the mayor (Paul Ford) by urging the townspeople to boycott his pool hall. He makes trouble for the mayor's wife (Hermione Gingold) and her school board ladies by urging them to sing with the barbershop quartet. He makes trouble for Winthrop (yes, it's Ron(ny) Howard) by urging him to sing songs with S's in them (he's got a TERRIBLE lithp!) He makes trouble for the boy's sister, Marian the librarian (Shirley Jones) by urging her to--well, as she tells her mother (Pert Kelton)--"you'll find it in Balzak." Now the professor's got trouble . . . but to look at the lovely Miss Jones, it's really no trouble at all. [filmfactsman]

This is a great musical! I first saw it in my early 20's and I am pleased it is still available. My wife never saw the movie so we are looking forward to receiving our copy.

I love movies that you can watch with the whole family. It is nice not to have to censor. We need more musical movies like this one. It is a classic.

If all you know about Wilson's ''The Music Man'' is based on the TV version, buy this disc. From set design, choreography and costuming to the brilliant soprano of Shirley Jones, you can't beat this for entertainment. Why ABC didn't air this masterpiece, instead of demean it with a cheap copy, is beyond belief.

This is truly a terrific masterpiece. This film (based on the musical by Meredith Willson) is about a con man named Harold Hill who always tries to lead a boy's band. He comes to River City, Iowa and falls in love with the librarian. Don't even bother renting this movie, because once you see it you'll want to watch it again and again. Forget the Disney version, this film is way better.

This is definitely one of my favorites. The music really sticks with you. I've gotten teased about it because I coincidentally share a name with the composer! Anyway, this is a very funny musical, and it keeps you entertained. :) Robert Preston and Shirley Jones did an excellent job.

This musical is a classic. I have never seen it performed as well as it was on the video. It was korny at some parts but it held it weight to earn 5 stars.
