Tommy is a 1975 musical film, based on The Who's 1969 rock opera album musical Tommy. It was directed by Ken Russell and featured a star-studded cast, including the band members themselves (most notably, lead singer Roger Daltrey plays the title role). Ann-Margret received a Golden Globe Award for her performance, and was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. Pete Townshend was also nominated for an Oscar for his work in scoring and adapting the music for the film. The film was the first and only film to be recorded with a Quintaphonic soundtrack. Some outdoor scenes were shot in the Borrowdale valley of the English Lake District, near to the home of Ken Russell as well as Southsea in Hampshire. The latter location is home to South Parade pier. A fire at the pier coincided with filming and the scenes in the movie are documentary footage of the blaze taken by Russell. Some scenes were shot on Portsdown Hill, which overlooks Portsmouth. Two churches were also used, one in Old Portsmouth, the other was St John's, in Stamshaw.
The film was shown at the 1975 Cannes Film Festival, but wasn't entered into the main competition.
