​​Seventy-six trombones lead the big parade in one of the biggest, brightest musicals ever filmed, Meredith Wilson's The Music Man. Robert Preston encores his Broadway triumph as Professor Harold Hill; Academy Award winner Shirley Jones stars as Marian the Librarian; and all the wonderful music, color and small-town charm of River City, Iowa, in 1912 come to life in this charming romance of a con man who falls in love and stays when he should take the money and get out of town. But just as Hill is expecting the townspeople to realize they have been duped, he witnesses a musical miracle which he leads as The Music Man.

Academy Award winner for Best Music Scoring and nominee for Best Picture.
