Robert Preston. Shirley Jones. Buddy Hackett. How can you go wrong? Even a young Ron Howard is in it (billed as Ronny Howard)! ‘The Music Man’ is a classic musical film. The basic story is about a con-man looking to make a big score who decides he can’t leave once he falls in love.
There are a bunch of different songs, but ‘Shipoopi’ led by Buddy Hackett and an ensemble of dancers and singers is pretty wild.
Take a step back and time and watch ‘Shipoopi!’
Wow! That is a BIG production. One can imagine the amount of work that went into it. You don’t really get to see anything like this anymore.
Not only is the production enormous, but the song teaches a proper lesson about proper courtship and it takes much more than just a kiss on a single date to win over that special lad or lady!
