I first discovered Ken Russell's infamous, beguiling rock film "Tommy," based on the album by The Who, when I was in high school. I saw the film on TV and was instantly obsessed with it.
A few years ago, before a trip to England, I found a book of movie locations and decided to track down some of the locales of this film I'd loved for so long.
In this article I'll share a little information about Portsmouth and some of the things I found out about the area while I was taking my "Tommy tour." While copyright laws forbid me to show the insets of actual frames from the film that line up with the pictures I took on location, you can still get a feel for the area. If you'd like to see my "inset" pictures, please check the link to my Facebook album below.
