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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Go out and get lost and fall in love with Brigadoon!
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.Read more ›
