Set in an enchanted Scottish village that appears but once a century, Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s elaborate musical Brigadoon found staying power on 1940s-era Broadway thanks to a winning mix of stellar dancing, memorable show tunes and a plot fusing romance with fantasy. Although it scored three Oscar nods and sparked an Emmy-winning TV movie, director Vincente Minnelli’s fairly faithful MGM adaptation got dissed by The New York Times as “curiously flat” and “pretty weak synthetic Scotch.” Beyond its fairy-tale appeal and vintage charm, the 1954 film is distinguished by fanciful sets, covetable costumes by Oscar winner Irene Sharaff and dance sequences that showcase the legendary talents of Cyd Charisse (as nimble lass Fiona Campbell) and Gene Kelley (as American hunter Tommy Albright). As part of its 60th anniversary film series, the McNay brings Brigadoon back out of the mist with a screening of Minnelli’s G-rated gem.
