In the original version, a con man named Harold Hill poses as a band organizer in order to sell various items to what he perceives as very naive folks in a town he came into. Harold, the con man, knows nothing about music and has absolutely no plans for providing much of anything. His initial plan was to pretty much take the money and run. However, his plans don’t work out as expected when he meets a woman and tries to win her love.
