  • Overview
  • Details
It doesn't get any better than this slice of Midwestern Americana: Charming con man Harold Hill (Robert Preston) wants to steal River City citizens' money with a "boys' band" scam, but finds it hard to skip town when lovely librarian Marian Paroo (Shirley Jones) steals his heart. Composer Meredith Willson's valentine to his own hometown packs great songs and wonderful performances from, among others, Buddy Hackett and a young Ron Howard.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's not much that's objectionable for kids in this classic musical. There's oblique speculation by the "Pick a Little, Talk a Little" ladies and by Harold and Marcellus about why the elderly gentleman donated the library building to the city but left the books to Marian, as well as criticism of the "raciness" of the books she recommends. Harold's song about the "Sadder but Wiser Girl for Me" describes (in G-rated terms) his preference for women with some sexual experience.

Sexual Content

Very oblique sexual references.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Very tame references to "smutty books." A man is referred to as a "common masher." "Hell."

Social Behavior

The joys and transformative powers of music are discussed through action, dialogue, and song. Con-artist characters learn to value honesty and love over greed and manipulation.
