The Music Man found Robert Preston re-creating his starring role as conman Professor Harold Hill, intent on swindling the good people of River City, IA, by selling them on a fictitious boys' band, and some minor roles were also filled by the Broadway originals.

You also get a huge Hollywood orchestra and chorus under the musical direction of Ray Heindorf! One of the best movie musicals ever made. In light of all the hit Broadway musicals that have stumbled in their translation to the big screen, The Music Man stands out as an exception; it is one of the best-loved movie musicals of all time . The CD was released nearly twenty years ago (I reckon), so the jewel case isn't as sturdy as those of newer releases. But the CD content is great and the price can't be beat. If you haven't seen the play or the movie, I highly recommend it!
