Morton DaCosta in The Music Man

The Music Man

1962 G

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.
