Oh, it’s this very role is my favorite Robert Preston role. The movie that introduced me to Robert Preston. The musical the made me a life-long fan of musicals. My first feminist hero. What’s not to love about The Music Man? Just tell me, so I can explain why you’re wrong.

Robert Preston starred as Roger Morgan in the 1962 epic western, How the West Was Won.

Found this in the Library. 

I just saw a DVD of "ya got trouble". It was very smartly done using scenes and songs from Preston's work and intermingling them with his life story. The actor makes no attempt at looking or sounding like RP, so it works. I found it bittersweet, entertaining and accurate ( as far as I know). If you have not already seen it, I recommend it.

I’ve heard of the shoe before, but I’ve never seen it available. Where’s you see it?
