5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite movies December 30, 2002
By Pope
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I first rented BRIGADOON from the public library last spring, I immediately fell in love with it. Just added the DVD to my collection yesterday. It is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. It is a 1954 film adaptation of the 1947 Broadway musical. The Lerner and Loewe score is one of the greatest ever written for the stage (or screen). The great cast includes Gene Kelly, Van Johnson, and Cyd Charisse. Although certainly not the greatest singers in the world, Kelly's and Johnson's singing is more than adequate and is really quite lovely. Charisse's singing voice is dubbed for this film, and she works great as well.
When Brigadoon made the transition from Broadway to Hollywood, a good chunk of its score was dispensed with in order to make room to highlight the dancing abilities of its stars. This is, in fact, where many people find fault with this film; the lack of the rest of the Broadway score. To these people, I have this to say... ---This movie is not the Broadway play. It is a **film adaptation.**--- This is also the common complaint about MGM's "Show Boat" from 3 years earlier. Another common complaint about "Brigadoon" is that it was obviously shot in soundstages on the MGM lot in Culver City instead of the highlands of Scotland. This was due to the fact that producers were working with smaller budgets than they had been just 3 or 4 years earlier. This, coupled with the unpredictable weather in the British Isles, necesitated that the film be shot at the studio. This is also evident in "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" from the same year. Although the sets are obviously painted backdrops, they are nicely done and work well. IMO, they do not demerit the film.
Brigadoon more than makes up for the missing songs by adding some spectacular dance numbers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Plus Factor June 29, 2005
Format:DVD
I saw a high school production of BRIGADOON in San Francisco at the ICA (Immaculate Conception Academy) at 24th and Guerrero. These girls who played the parts had never been anywhere near Scotland, you could tell, and some had not been in the USA very long and the charming accents of South of the Border stood in for the strong Scots burr. Nevertheless they played the show beautifully and ever since then I have had a fondness for the music and the story. I feel that the makers of MOULIN ROUGE were probably trying to capture some of the big-hearted appeal of BRIGADOON when they created their fantasy world. Watching the movie I have always felt that a bit of the magic was lost because so much of Minnelli's canvas was spent on dance elements which, IMHO, are just not that interesting. So many dance numbers created to take advantage of Gene Kelly's and Cyd Charisse's astonishing abilities. Maybe too many! Thus some of the musical numbers had to be cut out, including some of the loveliest of the songs Lerner and Loewe wrote for the 1947 musical.

Imagine my surprise and delight when the new DVD came out this spring and I discover that, in fact, Minnelli did film three of the rejected songs (and recorded another, perhaps the greatest) and that all of this deleted material would be available on the disc. I was in hog heaven. However we are all familiar with some deleted scenes that you watch and then you say, "Well, I know why that sucker got deleted" and I was afraid that these scenes would be of inferior quality. (Like "Is It A Crime?" in BELLS ARE RINGING--forgive me, "Crime" fans!)

But it is my pleasure to report that all 3 numbers here are keepers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Like Being in Love February 17, 2005
Format:DVD
The reason I saw this is because I am a huge Gene Kelly fan and I love Cyd Charisse as well! This isn't the greatest MGM musical but it was one of the last ones from the "Golden Age" that make this movie very special. The movie is about two hunters named Tommy(Gene Kelly) and Jeff (Van Johnson) who are in Scotland. While they are lost they stumble into this little village that isn't on their map. The village happens to be Brigadoon and it happens to wake up for one day every one hundred years. Tommy starts to fall in love with Fiona (Cyd Charisse) but Fiona can't leave the village if she does the town will disappear forever. This movie has a lot of great music my favorites are "Heather on the Hill", "Waitin' for My Dearie", "I'll Go Home With Bonnie Jean", and "Almost Like Being in Love." This is really one the last great musicals! This a must see movie! I am very happy that Warner Bros. re-released this on DVD with good extras!

Here are the extras:

First-ever New Digital 16x9 Transfer (2:55:1)

Soundtrack Remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1

Three Outtake Musical Numbers: Come to Me, Bend to Me, From this Day On and Sword Dance

Audio Outtake: There But for You Go I

Theatrical Trailer

Languages: English & French

Subtitles - English, French and Spanish

Go out and get lost and fall in love with Brigadoon!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Supurb Adaptation Of An Original German Fable July 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Originally, Brigadoon was a german short story called "Germelshausen". Frederick Loewe (Fritz to his friends) told Alan Lerner the story of a young artist, Arnold, who was sketching woodland scenes, when he meets a pretty girl, Gertrud, is struck by her beauty and curiously antiqued dress, and sketches her. She invites him to dine at home in the village of Gremelshausen, where she lives with her father (the local mayor), her step mother, and siblings. She has been waiting for her sweetheart but is resigned to the fact that he will not come. During the meal there is singing and dancing by the family membery, all interrupted by the sight on the street outside of a somber funeral procession.
After lunch, Arnold and Gertrud stroll through the village with its ancient buildings and strangley dressed residents. They finally arrive at a cemetery, where the girl begins to weep at the grave of her mother. When Arnold notices that the death date on the stone reads 1224, he questions Gerturd, who is evasive about this anomaly.
Attracted to each other, the couple return to her house to change clothing for a festive dance to be held that evening at the inn. Though a stranger, Arnold is welcomed by all the young people. One man, sensing that Arnold might want to remain in the village, mentions cryptically that the intervals pass fast enough, a point of curiosity to the visitor.
There is much dancing and merriment, broken each time the town bell tolls the hour. At eleven, Arnold begins to think longingly of his faraway mother and raises a glass to toast her. When Gertrud see this, she realizes how much he misses his mother and escorts the young man out of the inn, back to her home, where she hands him his traveling bag, and brings him to a nearby hilltop.
