Jesus Christ Superstar Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Ted Neeley makes for a wimpy looking Jesus in Norman Jewison's screen adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice "rock opera," which was a smash on stage in the early Super70s. Jewison (Other People's Money) adds some good exterior settings in the desert, but Webber and Rice's dialogue-free story (everything is sung, as in a real opera), with its quasi-profundities about the inner demons of principal figures in the life of Christ, is the real hook. Yvonne Elliman sings the show's best-known song, "I Don't Know How to Love Him."

Academy Awards

Jesus Christ Superstar received an Academy Awards nomination for Music Scoring Awards (Best Scoring: Original Song Score and/or Adaptation; Andre Previn, Herbert Spencer, Andrew Lloyd Webber).
