"Old but excellent"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Made in 1975 I had never seen it before. Great music and special effects.

"Great dvd..so Glad I could get it " Purchased on Mighty Ape

It was very difficult to find this dvd but I was glad that Mighty Ape had it in stock. It's very rare to get hold of anywhere else that I know of. Jennifer

Description

This classic rock opera is brought energetically to life by an outstanding cast including many stars of the rock music industry. Told through the remarkable music of The Who, this is the story of TOMMY, who, when just a boy of six, witnessed the murder of his father by his mother (Ann-Margaret) and her lover (Oliver Reed). They command him, "You didn't hear it, you didn't see it, and you won't say anything to anyone." As a result, the traumatized boy retreats into the shadows of his mind and becomes deaf, dumb and blind. Growing into manhood. Tommy (Roger Daltrey) is subjected to several bizarre cure attempts by The Acid Queen (Tina Turner), the Preacher (Eric Clapton), and the Specialist (Jack Nicholson). In spite of his handicap, Tommy defeats the Pinball Wizard (Elton John) and becomes the champ, attaining a devoted following. When he is finally cured, he is hailed by his fans as a "Messiah."
