Brigadoon

1954 / 108min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: VINCENTE MINNELLI

CAST: GENE KELLY, CYD CHARISSE, VAN JOHNSON

Lerner and Loewe’s Broadway smash concerning a New Yorker vacationing in the Scottish Highlands becomes pure movie magic in Minnelli’s hands, creating marvels of mise-en-scène with Cinemascope and eye-popping Anscocolor. Gene Kelly is the American abroad who stumbles across the magical village of the title, which appears from the mists only for one day every century, and Cyd Charisse is the Brigadoon lass who steals his heart. “The opening and closing passages... rank with Vincente Minnelli's finest, most purely cinematic work—magnificent orchestrations of textures, colors, and movements.”—Dave Kehr, The Chicago Reader
