I was flicking round tv late last night and found this film on itv 4,what a great film,i remember queuing to see it in '79 when it came out and i loved it,trouble was at that time i wasn't familiar with The Who and their music (i am now and have been for a long time ).Havn't watched it for a while but still love it,Phil Daniels as angry young man is brilliant,then there's the rest,is that really Leslie Ash ?,Sting,Toyah,various now soap stars,and the soundtrack,classic 60's and The Who,magic :D :) :*:

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

I watched it too .Not much of a script or a story but the fine cast ,sheer energy behind it , not to mention the music , ends up making it a good film.I spotted a young Timoth Spall in there too .I liked the scene in the barbers and the cafe scenes .It had a great period feel to it despite a few quirks (noticing 1970's cars and fashions in the outdoor road scenes). 8)

Oh Luke, fancy admitting to knowing that. I thought I was the resident trainspotter, living near Crewe. :wink: I used to take the kids to watch the steam trains and knew a lot of the numbers. :oops: I climbed on the footplate of the Flying Scotsman once - bliss. :D
