Bryan from Blueraycenter.com writes: Tommy is a musical rock opera based on the same-titled album released by The Who in 1969. The story stars Tommy (played by The Who’s own Roger Daltry) whose birth coincides with the British victory over the Germans in WWII. After assuming he was shot down in the war, Tommy’s mother, Nora, an assembly line worker in a weapons factory, begins dating her husband’s brother Cobb. However, Walker, Tommy’s real father, not only survived the war, but returns home only to find his wife and brother in bed together. Cobb kills Walker in the heat of the moment in front of his own son so he, along with Nora, tell Tommy not to speak of what he witnessed. As a result, Tommy grows up pretending to be blind, deaf, and dumb.
