^Parts of it, yes. But that's only, like, two or three songs.

I think Brigadoon is one of the few musicals that could have realistically have been done as a movie exactly as it's done on stage. It's a shame they didn't ask my opinion before filming. (Yes, I am aware it was filmed almost 50 years ago).

actually Brigadoon was set ot be filmed on location but it was rain season in Scotland so they were stuck filming it on a sound stage.

^I wasn't referring to just the location, I also meant keeping the same dialogue and songs.

Post subject:  Better BRIGADOON film

Well, rather Scotland, they were actually thinking of filming it in northern California. But then the budget was slashed drastically.

A better video version of the show -- and I'm surprised no one has mentioned it is the 1967 Robert Goulet-Sally Ann Howes made-for-TV version. Musically much, much better. (PM me if you want to buy a DVD of that.)

I have seen both versions of the movie (the hard to find tv-version most recently). While I do like the the 1967 version is more true to the stage show, there is just NO chemistry between any of the characters for some reason! I love their voices and all and the dancing is great, but in the Movie with Gene Kelly, I at least believe that they are in love . . .

Mostly, I just miss Meg Brockie in the Movie and in the TV version she is there, which is great, but Jeff is disappointing IMHO.

I honestly kind of like how the Movie does "Go Home with Bonnie Jean"--adding different kinds of dance shows the clash of the two cultures and really highlights the entrance of Jeff and Tommy into a completely different world. I would consider adding it in a stage version actually.

I thought that was pretty cool too...

...and I'm probably gonna get something thrown at me, but I liked the movie. It grew on me.

The movie is the movie and could stand a re-make. I've been Musical Director for the satge show and it's FAR superior (IMHO) but I do agree that the stage script would work quite well as a screenplay with only a little "updating". Isn't it about time we had some decent re-makes without cuts and replacement numbers in them?
