WestportREADS 2017 Movie: The Music Man
Con man Harold Hill arrives in staid River City intending to cheat the community with his standard scam of offering to equip and train a boy's marching band, then skip town with the money since he has no music skill anyway. Things go awry when he falls for a librarian he tries to divert from exposing him while he inadvertently enriches the town with a love of music. Robert Preston and Shirley Jones star in this classic musical. (1962; 2h 31m)
