Brigadoon 1966

1966

As a special Brigadoon companion post to Curious and Unusual Tartans we have a highland sword dance, performed by ballet dancer Edward Villella, in the 1966 Television version of Brigadoon. Winning 5 primetime Emmy awards, and starring Robert Goulet, Sally Ann Howes, and Peter Falk, this version includes songs and dances not included in the more familiar 1954 film version with Cyd Charisse and Gene Kelly. Note: Sword dance begins at ~55:55 The linked video below starts right before the sword dance in the wedding scene.
