Tommy (1975, UK)

In the film dramatization of The Who's (and Peter Townshend) rock opera - a musical cult film by extravagant and excessive director Ken Russell:

  • the pulsating production number "The Pinball Wizard" during a pinball tournament in which 'deaf, dumb, and blind kid' pinball wizard Tommy Walker (Roger Daltry), defeated the champion Pinball Wizard (Elton John) who wore skyscraper shoes and glittering eye-glass goggles, and then sang: "See me, feel me. Touch me, heal me"
  • Tina Turner's famous, scintillating performance as The Acid Queen
