Another Harold Hill?

Since we started this blog we have noticed that a lot of visitors come from the United States of America. I have a hunch that this is because of the Harold Hill in the Broadway hit musical from the 1950s. The Music Man became a film in the 1960s and a US television version in 2003. This Harold Hill rather than being a place is a person and a con man at that. In fact looking at what is said on Twitter it appears that as well as being part of popular culture it is also an insult to suggest someone is Harold Hill-like and untrustworthy.

If you want to find out more then look on the internet. And in case anyone has come looking for film references this website is definitely one for the Harold Hill Festival in Harold Hill, Essex.
