Tommy is a British rock opera movie from 1975, based upon The Who's 1969 „Tommy“ album. It features a star-studded cast, including the band members themselves, Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Arthur Brown and Jack Nicholson. Tina Turner plays the „Acid Queen,“ a prostitute dealing in LSD, who sends Tommy on a wild trip. In addition to the movie, Tina recorded also the song Acid Queen for the soundtrack album and released a re-recorded version as a single in 1976, taken from her Acid Queen solo album.
