The Scottish Highlands, even today, are rugged and sparsely populated, and for good reason. They're not easily accessible; I suspect it was even worse in 1947. I would find it hard to believe (yeah, this whole thread is hard to believe!) that you could take a rental car and conveniently drive to Brigadoon. I figured Tommy and Jeff, on their first visit, had made some village their base for hunting/hiking, and stumbled upon the even more remote Brigadoon while trekking about.

I'd forgotten it's nighttime when they go back ("Laddie, you woke me up!"), and that itself strains credulity. Sure, let's go looking for an invisible village in the pitchblack dark. "I just want to see where it was!" Tommy cries. How can he see where it was if it's the middle of the night?

Okay, I revise my earlier ending. Somehow, for dramatic license, they find Brigadoon in the dark, and Mr. Lundie escorts Tommy into the mist. Jeff gets lost trying to find his way back to wherever they parked the car, miles and miles away, falls down a steep incline, and is killed.

D.I. John Orr: Och, the puir fool of an American, he hit his haid on a stone.
D.S. MacLellan: But where's t'other one????

Curtain.
