Americans Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, on a hunting vacation in Scotland, discover a quaint and beautiful village, Brigadoon. Strangely, the village is not on any map, and soon Tommy and Jeff find out why: Brigadoon is an enchanted place.

The long-horned cow was scary for Gene Kelly. For his scene with the animal, he ordered that it be blindfolded and chained to the floor. Plastic eyes were attached to the blindfold. See more »

Look... I'm not saying I believe all this, but just for argument's sake... suppose... suppose a stranger like... well, like... like me... came to Brigadoon and wanted to stay. Could he?

Other commentors have criticized this movie up and down for its casting, props, stage, singing and dancing. I don't profess to be an expert on any of those things. I enjoy movies and I enjoyed this one. It is the story line that gets me most. That an entire village appears for just one day every 100 years may be far fetched but is great fantasy. I'll have to admit that I've enjoyed this story more in live theater than the movie version, but the movie version is much easier to pop in the VCR for anytime viewing. I think its a great movie and might make a great remake if someone was willing to address the criticisms left here by other commentors.
