Definitely a film that fit right in with the 70's.

Did you know that...

- Rod Stewart was originally intended to play the pinball wizard, but Elton John talked him out of it. John then took the part himself. Stewart had played the part in a London stage production, and his version of the song is on his 'Greatest Hits' collection.

- Elton John asked to keep the outrageous boots from his costume.

- According to Pete Townshend, Oliver Reed had incredible problems recording his part of the soundtrack owing to his inability to sing, and he was able to complete it only because his singing parts were recorded in small bits. Because of this frustrating experience, Townshend was extremely suspicious towards Jack Nicholson when he was chosen for the role of the doctor. Townshend, however, finally agreed when he heard Nicholson singing effortlessly.

- Roger Daltrey was less than three years younger than his screen mother, Ann-Margret and just over four years younger than his screen step-father, Oliver Reed.

- George Lucas was offered the chance to direct this movie in the early-1970s, but turned it down because he was developing American Graffiti (1973).
(so glad he did!)
