Tommy the movie was directed by Kent Russel during the year of 1974.
The movie and soundtrack included such actors and vocalists as Keith Moon as Uncle Ernie, Roger Daltrey as Tommy, Elton
John as the pinball wizard, Eric Clapton as the preacher, Jack Nicholson as the doctor, Tina Turner as the acid Queen and
Pete Townshend as the narrator. The Who performed most of the songs as well.
If you're wondering, Pete Townshend DID compose all of the 'extra' songs in the track list. Interestingly enough, Kenny
Jones (80's Who drummer) played drums on most of the tracks. Simon Townshend (pete's brother) was a newsboy as well.
