Norman Jewison (MOONSTRUCK; IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT) directed this thrilling adaptation of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, starring Ted Neeley as Jesus and Carl Anderson as Judas Iscariot. Among the classic songs in the film are I Don't Know How to Love Him, Hosanna, and King Herod's Song (Try It and See). The song score was nominated for an Academy Award.Shot entirely on location in Israel. Color by Technicolor; shot in the Todd-AO 35 widescreen process.Based on the smash-hit Broadway musical, this colorful adaptation tells the story of a group of teenage actors who travel to Israel to reenact the Passion of Christ. The story is told through a lively and engaging series of song-and-dance numbers.Groovy!
