This is one of my favorite scenes in The Who's fabulous 1975 rock opera Tommy. Ann-Margret's performance is even further over-the-top than the outfit or set decor in this stunning clip, and that's really saying something. Its imagery is laced with disturbing doses of emotional truth, but Champagne is a musical and visual creation so beautiful and gripping, one watches on, with breath caught somewhere between heart and limbic center.
