One of the peppiest musicals ever made kicks off our next Movie of the Day series, which is also centered around the 4th of July. Yes, I recommended a whole month of movies on that topic, but this week I'm also giving you four bonus picks as we get closer to Saturday. Today it's The Music Man, which stars Robert Preston and Shirley Jones, and gives us the tale of con man Harold Hill, who arrives in River City, Iowa on Independence Day weekend with the scheme of being paid by the local yokels to create a marching band, but plans to skip town with the cash. Preston is iconic in the role of "Professor" Harold Hill (which he played on Broadway originally), and the songs include "76 Trombones" and "Til There Was You." It's a great summer movie that suits the mood this week, since there are few things more American than get-rich-quick schemes, right? Plus, this is one of those movies that just plain leaves you in a good mood.
