Synopsis

Watch: The Music Man 1962 123movies, Full Movie Online – It’s the early 20th-century American Midwest. A con man going by the assumed name Harold Hill has used several different schemes to bilk the unsuspecting, and now travels from town to town pretending to be a professor of music – from the Gary (Indiana) Conservatory of Music, class of ’05 – who solves all the respective towns’ youth problems by forming boys’ marching bands. He takes money from the townsfolk to buy instruments, music, instructional materials, and uniforms for their sons. However, in reality, he has no degree and knows nothing about music, and after all the materials arrive and are distributed, he absconds with all the money, never to be seen again. Many of the traveling salesmen in the territory have been negatively impacted by him, as the townsfolk then become suspicious of any stranger trying to sell them something. For Harold’s scheme to work, he must gain the trust of the local music teacher, usually by wooing her, regardless of her appearance. And if the town doesn’t believe it has a youth problem needing to be fixed, he will manufacture one for them. That is the case when he arrives in River City, Iowa, population 2,212, where he will have some unexpected help from Marcellus Washburn, a friend and former grifter colleague who now lives in River City and has gone straight, but he still wants to make sure Harold survives his stay in town. River City’s music teacher is spinster and town librarian Marian Paroo. He’s able to impress all the other River Citizens with his fast-talking sales pitches, but not suspicious Marian, whose hard-as-nails exterior is unlike all the other River Citizens. Her exterior is partly due to her somewhat removed standing in the town, as all the gossipy housewives believe she is a smut peddler – encouraging the teenagers to read authors such as Chaucer and Balzac – and mistakenly believe that she got her position as librarian through less-than-scrupulous means. What Harold does not know is that one way to Marian is through her young adolescent brother, Winthrop Paroo, a sullen boy who has withdrawn from life since their father’s death two years before, when he started to lisp. Harold starts to fall for Marian, something that never happened with any of the other music teachers. Further complications may ensue if any of those traveling salesmen who have been following his route through the territory catch up with and expose him..
Plot: A con man comes to an Iowa town with a scam using a boy’s marching band program, but things don’t go according to plan.

Still great after all these years
I first saw “The Music Man” on its first run in 1962. I just saw it again last night on cable. If anything, I enjoyed it more last night. I think that your belief in “fairy tales” such as this only grows with the passing of the years. Preston’s performance is so near-perfect that the viewer starts to believe his line of corn-fed BS. The knowledge of what Ron Howard has become enhances the enjoyment of his fine work here. It’s funny, magical and a musical treat to the ears!!

A Genuine Masterpiece
The film adaptation of “The Music Man” is so superbly crafted on every level that even the most jaded cynic might find something to admire in it. This was one of the blockbuster movie releases in the summer of 1962, and in fact the anticipation for its release began as soon as it went into production at Warner Bros. in Burbank during the summer of 1961.

Of course there are minor flaws that might be pointed out, but for the most part, this is a nearly perfect adaptation of the original 1957 Broadway hit. Thankfully, most of the creative forces behind the Broadway success were retained. Most notably, the director, Morton DaCosta, was entrusted to adapt the story from stage to screen, and also the great choreographer, Onna White, who expanded her original dance numbers to fit the wide screen.

I disagree with those who think Barbara Cook should have been retained from the original Broadway cast. While it may be true that she had a stronger soprano voice than Shirley Jones, the fact remains that Barbara Cook was not “pretty enough” to make the leap to the big screen. Shirley Jones was at the peak of her beauty when she was cast as Marian the Librarian. Her vocal register is darker and lower than Cook’s, but this is exactly what was necessary in a screen adaptation. Cook’s singing voice is ideally suited to reach the back rows of a Broadway theater. It would not have translated well to the screen.

I cannot add any further insights into the greatness of Robert Preston’s portrayal. Everything has already been stated so well here. But every part, from smallest to largest, is damn near perfect. That even includes the bit part assigned to Percy Helton as the train conductor. And Ron Howard was a genuine prodigy who was ideally suited to the role of Winthrop. Even little Monique Vermont shines in her role as Amaryliss.

This film might well have deserved an Oscar for Best Picture of 1962. Unfortunately, it was eclipsed by the end of the year by another legitimate masterpiece, “Lawrence of Arabia.” But let there be no doubt. “The Music Man” was one of the finest pictures of 1962, or any year.

I suggest that dedicated fans of this work seek out the Capitol LP , “And Then I Wrote The Music Man,” featuring Meredith Willson recreating his original investors’ presentation from the Broadway run, assisted by his wife, Rini.
