Odeon to Release Ken Russell's Tommy

Posted September 12, 2013 03:22 PM by Webmaster

Odeon CinemasBritish distributors Odeon Entertainment will release on Blu-ray director Ken Russell's Tommy (1975), starring Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Jack Nicholson, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John, and Keith Moon. The release will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United Kingdom on November 11th.

If you've ever wanted to hear Jack Nicholson sing or marvel at the sight of Ann-Margret drunkenly cavorting in a cascade of baked beans, Tommy is the movie you've been waiting for. The Who's brilliant rock opera is sublimely matched by director Ken Russell's penchant for cinematic excess during the peak of his film-making audacity. It's a fever-dream of musical bombast,revolving around the titular 'deaf, dumb, and blind kid' (Daltrey) who survives the childhood trauma that stole his senses to become a Pinball Wizard.

Tommy's odyssey is rendered through wall-to-wall music, from the bloodstream shock of 'The Acid Queen' (Tina Turner) to Elton John's towering rendition of 'Pinball Wizard' and Daltrey's epiphanous rendition of 'I'm Free'. Other star performers include Eric Clapton and (most outrageously) the Who's drummer Keith Moon.

Special Features:
  • Audio Commentary with Ken Russell and Mark Kermode
  • Ken Russell on Tommy
  • Pete Townshend Interview
  • Roger Daltrey Interview
  • Ann-Margret Spills the Beans
  • The Story of the Sound
  • Theatrical Trailer

All the extras lifted off the region 2 DVD then-but better than the bare bones region 1 blu ray....

No drugs were used in the making of this film. Well... maybe just a DUSTING of grass.

Buy it for me, grandma!

I suppose one should take it for granted given that this is a site for blu-ray news, but I find it curious that the announcement does not once use the words blu-ray or high-definition. Hopefully more information about the transfer and specs will be provided soon.

well, just bought the US release and haven't even watched it yet, so I hope a review is able to give a comparison on PQ and sound, the extras alone would have to be especially entertaining or insightful to be worth a double dip. ditto the comment we need more Ken Russell on blu.

YES!! I was wondering if they would re-release it somehow to tie in with the new deluxe reissue of the album, this is great news!

I think the actual album is going to be released in Blu-Ray Audio as well
