Special to The Press

“Brigadoon” has a special place in Rody Gilkeson’s heart.

“My mother used to love to watch movie musicals,” he says. “When it was on TV, she would sing along with the songs.”

Gilkeson says his mother was a big fan of actor Van Johnson, who played the best friend of Gene Kelly’s Tommy Albright in “Brigadoon,” so the lilting Scottish fantasy was one of her favorites.
