I could wait another 30 years
Tonight, Turner Classic Movies is showing a film I had seen only once previously -- and that viewing was more than 30 years ago.
I guess this film adaptation of the rock opera "Tommy" qualifies as a classic, since it did produce a Golden Globe and an Academy Award nomination for Ann-Margret (shown above with The Who's Roger Daltrey, who played Tommy).
But, aside from Ann-Margret, "Tommy" didn't do much for me in 1975, when I first saw it. And it does even less for me now. It struck me as a strange movie then, and it seems even stranger now.
Wonder what's on ESPN.
