In an alternate universe, the recruiting alien from The Last Starfighter got together with the mom from the Partridge Family and the narrator from Arrested Development and filmed a musical together. OH WAIT THAT'S THIS UNIVERSE!

I've had the 1962 Original Movie Soundtrack for The Music Man [YT playlist] memorized for so many decades I once freaked out an entire room of people by doing Rock Island and Iowa Stubborn along with the movie while it was playing on TCM.

I too can probably sing the entire movie from memory, and recite most of the dialog. It's one of the movies I watched OVER and OVER and OVER as a kid. Of all the old musicals my mom sat me down to watch, it was by far my favorite.

I came to this through loving Robert Preston as Centauri first, since that's where I first saw him, but damned if I see an urn now without saying, "One Grecian Urn!" in my head.

I love this musical so much. I can't remember if I saw it on stage before I saw the movie - I have only a very vague memory of that first stage production, I think it must have been a regional thing some summer in Connecticut when I was a child. But I loved the movie, and got to see the most recent Broadway revival 4 times. First with Craig Bierko sometime in the middle of his run -- he seemed to be channeling Preston, and it was mesmerizing. Then I went again for Bierko's final performance, which was electrifying. Then Eric McCormack took over the part, so I went again, and thought he did a creditable job (though I will always love Bierko best). Then Robert Sean Leonard took over, and I went again, and it was amazingly awful -- like, I knew he wasn't a song & dance man, but, the drop in energy level was palpable. And he played it like a drama; I wish I could remember the exact line, but, I remember being shocked when he managed to drop one of his punchlines. Every other performance of the production, when they got to the curtain call/76 Trombones reprise, the audience was standing and clapping the entire way through it, but in Leonard's the audience sat through the whole thing and the clapping ended early on. I can only imagine how demoralizing it must have been for the rest of the cast who had experienced what it felt like before.

But I love even the lousy productions. Like the 2003 tv-adaptation with Matthew Broderick, that was a fairly terrible version, but I remember thinking that their Winthrop was maybe my favorite ever. The bad shows make you appreciate the good ones, and really bring home the difficulty level of playing Harold Hill. I mean, it's not a part that demands operatic singing skills, but it requires a level of charisma and energy that not every actor can manage. He is the engine that drives the show, and if that actor doesn't make you feel as enthused as the people of River City, it's like seeing the tricks behind a magic act.

Ditto on having the whole thing memorized--for my entire family, even. It always makes me stumble when I see live productions of it, though, when they get to the Uneeda Biscuit. And My White Knight instead of Being in Love.

The other best thing that came out of Meredith Wilson's collaboration with Robert Preston was Chicken Fat, the ridiculously catchy workout song commissioned by the Kennedy administration's Council on Physical Fitness. I wasn't old enough to have experienced it in school, so I probably don't have the proper blend of nostalgia and resentment about it, but I love it all the same.

(My link above is probably pretty mysterious, and I don't know that I can explain much. I spent some time in the late '90s amusing myself by trying random web domains, and that's how I encountered F'loom and sent for one of their a cappella CDs. Weird shit. The track linked above is described in the liner notes as an imagined dialogue between Harold Hill and real-life media critic Neil Postman. A friend and I painstakingly transcribed the whole thing and performed it at an open-mic night, much to everyone's confusion. And this was the kind of open mic where the emcee pressured people to come up by reading aloud from Being and Time between acts.

I heard the F'loom track before I'd even seen The Music Man, and when I finally rectified the omission some years later... well, I won't say things suddenly made sense, but the shock of recognition was certainly interesting.)

In 1972, some of us in my high school band were recruited/shanghaied into providing the backing band for the drama department's production of "Music Man", their first musical. We skipped the intro/main title music and started on the train for the a capella "Rock Island" bit, with the band filling in seats in the onstage 'train' set. I got to pipe in on a couple of the "whadyasay"s and "no it ain't"s, then we all rushed back to the 'orchestra pit' to do the "Iowa Stubborn" song. Good times.

One other thing about the high school production of 'Music Man': the student who played Harold Hill started talking off-stage like Robert Preston - totally overdramatic - and for the rest of junior and senior years, he never got out of it...

When I started college, I volunteered for the underpopulated drama department's production of 'A Man for All Seasons' and was cast as Cardinal Wolsey, a role played by Orson Welles, in which he had an intense single scene with the title character then died offstage (leaving me available to work on the stage crew). In rehearsals, I was constantly being told to "project more" and be "more Orson Welles". I guess I was a little scared of being stuck in that mode, because in the next-to-last rehearsal before the first performance, I got to where my character declared "Our ambassador is a ninny" and yelled it out in my best Paul Lynde impression. The reaction was evenly divided between giddy laughter and stunned silence.

Winthrop is a tough sell for me. I usually feel a kind of second-hand embarrassment watching him, which the cute-kid factor can't overcome.

I always tear up in this song, I so resent how scummy modern Wellls Fargo has become - stealing from people and wrecking their credit by setting up false accounts. I have to walk past one of their ATMs on my commute, and instead of getting to have a nice 'Music Man' nostalgia moment, I can only give it a 'you are a criminal enterprise that should be put out of business' glare.

The Music Man has been a part of my life since I was about four - I very clearly remember watching it on the TV at Christmas in about... 1969? That sounds about right. It was certainly before I'd worked out there were different things on the TV rather than one long, confusing programme. And we used to listen to the original Broadway version a lot, too.

One of my favourite factoids about the film is that it's one of the small number of things that were artfully shot in such a way as to conceal the fact that the lead actress was really rather pregnant at the time (along with a season of Seinfeld, the first series of Black Books and Shiina Ringo's video for Irohanihoheto).

The bit where it becomes clear that Good Night My Someone and 76 Trombones are the same song and Shirley Jones launches into the wrong one is a gag worthy of Airplane.

I long assumed that it was based on a classic American novel, but no, it was entirely original. Which is quite extraordinary, when you come to think about it. And autobiographical, too, to a certain extent.

This was one of three cassettes of musicals we rotated during family summer cross-country vacations, which were played on a Realistic portable tape player/recorder. So this show is deeply rooted in my brain.

Oh yeah, I also saw the Broadway revival with Craig Bierko and Rebecca Luker. That production made me so happy, and I’m glad that I missed the later versions.

Not only did I obsessively listen to this album as a child, but about 10 years ago, I went with my sib and their family to an outdoor, summer production. It was magical, if a bit buggy, and the kids (young elementary age) became equally obsessed. But they didn't just listen, they had to have the lyrics printed out and memorized (the internet as a force of good). Someone would just start singing, and the whole household would join in. To have a small child look you in the eye and start belting out "Maaaariaaaan, Madame Librrrrrrrriaaaan" - and running up and down the stairs acting it out - well, it was cute and sweet, and now they are in college and finishing high school, and I think I need to dust...

I note that the performance and general upbeat mood of Gary Indiana certainly suggest that it must be a wonderful place, but a close reading of the lyrics reveals that he never actually says anything good about it, just that he came from there and so he's got good memories.

Brilliantly observed on the part of the writers. The good con artist doesn't actually lie to you but just walks you right up to the line and lets you step across on your own.

I am the only member of my family who loves this movie, but I will defend it to my dying breath. Great music, great banter, great performances. Ye gods!

I will continue my one-woman campaign for a live musical version of The Music Man starring Jon Hamm. He really doesn't need to sing that well for this part and it's just something I want. I started on a dream cast for this too, but I got distracted.

My personal theory is that Winthrop is Marian's son. You can at least make a good case for it. In any case, I do wonder if that was originally the plan but it was decided against at some point along the way.

I love The Music Man. It's just such a delight and I watch it a lot. (I was not that big on the 2003 TV adaptation -- I think beyond Matthew Broderick, it felt pretty miscast.)

Another huge fan here. IIRC, there's an episode of Happy Days where Richie and Marion pass a movie theater with an original "Music Man" poster on the wall, and Marion says something like "hmmm, that kid looks familiar."

After YouTube became a thing, there was a time when I went down a deep, deep rabbit hole listening to The Buffalo Bills and lots of groups like them.

It is worth checking out Meredith Willson's career - this was the only thing I knew him for, but it turns out it's far from the only thing he did. He wrote the score for The Great Dictator, for example. The man wrote at least two symphonies, that has to be worth something. Even if I've no idea whether they're any good.

(They are on Spotify, though, so I'll check them out later.)

I've always loved this musical and have a great deal of it memorized. At some point, however, I learned that my wife (and most of her friends) absolutely despised it. It wasn't that she disliked the music, it was the old fashioned gender politics that annoyed her so badly. So I've learned to tamper down on my enthusiasm for it and just accept it as a problematic fave I don't talk about.

I am 51, and still biologically capable of having a kid. (NOT planning to. But Steps Are Taken to make sure there are no Winthrops appearing.) And I'm not alone among my age peers. So, yeah, in my admittedly limited sample selection, "pretty unlikely" is incorrect. In fact, biology being what it is, "life finds a way" and such, there's a certain amount of anxiety about this in my friend group.

My high school did The Music Man in 1981. Our choir director chose to have 4 students be the barbershop quartet, instead of hiring adults. We were pretty solid. Our tenor, was playing kill the man with the ball, got elbowed in the throat, and lost one of his vocal cords for a while. Director wanted to replace him with another guy we all hated...

Tenor healed enough in the end, and we were awesome.
