    Synopsis


    Tommy
    Tommy (Roger Daltrey) is a "deaf, dumb and blind kid" who retreats into himself after the death of his father. His mother, Nora (Ann-Margret), and stepfather Frank (Oliver Reed) take him to see a specialist (Jack Nicholson) but Tommy is apparently a hopeless case. That is, until Tommy discovers that "he sure plays a mean pinball." Tommy gains fame when he defeats the Pinball Wizard (Elton John) for the world championship. As a result, Tommy becomes such a celebrity that he even founds his own religious cult. But his fans begin to commercialize his fame, while Tommy wants to stick to the straight and narrow. When Tommy wants to end the commercialization of his message, his supporters accuse him of being hypocritical and turn on him. Ann-Margret, with a slinky red dress slit way up the side, was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, losing out to Louise Fletcher in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      I already owned the Tommy regular Blu-Ray,but I had to get this Best Buy exclusive steelbook,so the product is worthy of the 5 stars. Picture quality is beautiful,and I have owned this on every format,the downside is the lack of extras(The British DVD had a separate disc,full of extras)but THIS version should not receive anything less than 5 stars,due to the packaging,sound and picture quality.

      It's definitely not for the faint of heart! But if you've got an open mind, and especially if you're a Who fan on top of that, you just might like it. I loved it personally, but I can seehow it might be an acquired taste, haha! :)

      Item arrived great. The only problem I have is how they ship it. I wish they shipped it more padded because this is a metal steelbook and it needs extra protection during transit so it does not arrive damaged with dents and bents.

      The best rock opera

      'Tommy' is by far the best attempt at creating a "rock opera". The Who's classic music and great performances from Anne Margaret and other musicians like Elton John and Aretha Franklin make this a great watch.

      Tommy is a great musical that any fan of Rock n Roll will love. Its cooky as you take a trip through The Who's many hits. The cover art is spectacular and comes in a nice tin case

      Never saw the movie. Still might not ever watch it, who knows. I got it to support the artist responsible for the Steelbook cover...Tom Whalen.
