A deaf, dumb and blind child is cured and becomes a rock star

This surreal musical fantasy is based upon The Who’s 1969 rock opera album of the same name, but it makes little apparent sense. The film includes a night scene towards the beginning that was filmed on the Bluebell Railway at Horsted Keynes station, with a train hauled by BR Standard Class 4MT 4-6-0 No.75027. The scene was shot in just one day in June 1974.
