Synopsis: 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. It appears once every hundred years for one day, then disappears back into the mists of time, to wake up to its next day a century hence. When Tommy falls in love with Fiona, a girl of the village, he realizes that she can never be part of his life back in America. Can he be part of hers in Brigadoon?

"Comfortable, anyhow."

- I envy you.

- Why?

You seem so satisfied.

I am. Aren't you?

"No, I'm not."

That's the silliest thing

I ever heard.

You've got a fine job

and you're engaged to a fine girl.

You're lost in a fine forest.

What more do you want?

I don't know.

Something seems wrong.

Especially about Jane and me.

That makes everything seem wrong.

Look how I postponed getting married.

I can't get myself to that altar.

Don't you love her?

You did when we left New York.

Sometimes I think I'm really

not capable of loving.

Sometimes I think nobody is anymore.

That's nonsense.

Don't start talking yourself

into an inferiority complex.

- You don't deserve it.

- What do you mean?

Most of my friends who have

an inferiority complex are right.

They're not as good

as everybody else.

"But you...

young, dashing, loaded."

Hey. Look at that.

- It looks like a village.

- It is.

I thought you said there were

no towns on the map around here.

"- I did. You wanna see the map?

- No, I believe you."

Let's go down.

There must be people down there.

They must eat food.

That's what we're interested in.

Funny it isn't on the map.

Maybe they don't like publicity.

Jean. Jean!

- Come away from the window.

- I'm tryin' to see Charlie.

"I know you are,

and you're not supposed to."

'Tis bad luck to see the groom

before the weddin'.

Put the clothes in the chest.

Do you think he's glad

he's marryin' me...

or do you think he's

beginnin' to regret it?

"Well, if I see him..."

I'll ask him.

"Now, hurry up."

"Father, how did ye feel

when Mother agreed to marry ye?"

I didn't propose to her.

She proposed to me.

Didn't it make you happy?

"Aye, her good judgment

pleased me highly."

"Fiona, you'll be sure

to see Charlie and tell him..."
