TCM: Stars Birthdays - Gene Kelly

Stars Birthdays – Gene Kelly: Brigadoon

TCM – Thursday 23 August, 10.30pm

Cyd Charisse is exquisite in this film of Lerner and Loewe’s Broadway hit. While out on a grouse shoot in Scotland, Americans Gene Kelly and Van Johnson stumble across a magical village on the one day in every 100 years it becomes visible. Festivities for a wedding are underway and the duo becomes involved in the preparations. Kelly is the more eager of the two, after he sets eyes on the stunning lassie Charisse. Wonderful dance numbers and memorable songs such as “I’ll Go Home With Bonnie Jean” and “The Heather On The Hill” make this a must for all music lovers.
