Welcome to the Brigadoon forum, xoFoRgEtReGrEtox!! I'm sorry we've made such a poor first impression. We're really not mean; we just have a strange way of teasing each other.

We're really very glad that you like Brigadoon. It's a wonderful movie, though, as Salome and others have mentioned, it's not a patch on the stage show. Many musicals of the 40's and 50's were filmed for the movies; the opening credits will state something like: Based on the Stage Production by <whoever it is> and choreographed by <whoever it is>.

Now, how about telling us some of the things you like best about the movie? Shall I start? Aside from Gene Kelly's dancing, which is always superb, there's a line near the end that's delivered when the guys are in a crowded bar; I think it's Van Johnson who says it. Anyway, whenever my son and I are in an uncomfortably loud, crowded, over-stuffy place, we'll agree about our discomfort that 'It's not the heat - it's the humanity!'

Anyway, there you are. I look forwarded to hearing from you.

I like the film version a lot, Kelly's really good in it. It's just a pity that they cut out some songs from it. :( Have there been any revivals of the stage production?

The film version isnt perfect but it has some wonderful things in it. namely Van Johnson's perfect portrayal of Jeff...


When I was in Brigadoon, we had a Jeff that embodied everything Jeff is. He did a great job. This, however, was namely because he was just like Jeff in real life. It was almost like he was playing himself and recieting lines written by Lerner. He even said near the end that jeff was hard to play because they where so much alike...which probably wasn't the best thing in the world...
