Cult 1975 movie Tommy, released by Universal Pictures, Certificate 15, is on sale in the UK on DVD format since June 18, 2001.

Ken Russell's film adaptation of The Who's 1968 rock opera sees our eponymous hero, played by The Who's vocalist, Roger Daltrey, as a blind, deaf and dumb boy who finds salvation through his only talent, playing pinball.

A host of bizarre characters grace the story, including Uncle Ernie (Keith Moon), The Acid Queen (Tina Turner) and Cousin Kevin (Paul Nicholas), plus there's musical contributions from The Who themselves and Elton John as the Pinball Wizard, Eric Clapton and Oliver Reed.
