I had put "Brigadoon" on my Netflix queue many moons ago with some vague memory of catching snippets of it on late night TV and liking it. It finally made it to my mailbox and watched it in its entirety. It's sort of like a "Lost Horizon" in kilts. Very quaint but most of the numbers felt like rehashes of other better musicals. One number though was enjoyable because of the introduction of tap to a group of villagers dancing a supposedly traditional Irish gig. It's the all too familiar "dance-off" with the rural vs urban, traditional vs modern, West Side Story and Step up.
