Ken Russell’s delirious adaptation of The Who’s epic rock opera is still mind-blowing visual trip. Featuring enduring songs such as Pinball Wizard, superstar cameos, memorable performances from Ann Margaret, Oliver Reed and Roger Daltry and a host of Portsmouth and Southsea locations, where most of the film was shot.
