Two Americans on a hunting trip in Scotland become lost. They encounter a small village, not on the map, called Brigadoon, in which people harbor a mysterious secret, and behave as if they were still living two hundred years in the past.
Average Shot Length (ASL) = 32 seconds - about three times as long as most films made during the classical Hollywood era.
I'm leaving Brigadoon! 'Tis the end of all of us! The miracle is over!
When talking to Mr. Lundie, Tommy says that they are from New York, which was renamed from New Amsterdam, after Mr. Lundie seems not to understand the location. New Amsterdam was renamed New York in 1664, 90 years prior to the events of the film. This would have been common knowledge, making Tommy's explanation unnecessary, as well as Mr. Lundie's reaction ridiculous.
A 1.75:1 wide screen version was filmed simultaneously with the 2.55:1 CinemaScope version. It is comprised of alternate takes.
