Jewison, a director of large talent, has taken a piece of commercial shlock and turned it into a Biblical movie with dignity.

Like a baptism by fire, Jesus Christ Superstar rarely leaves the viewer in lukewarm waters

Overall: Some good songs, some interesting choreography, and some utterly forgotten actors.

Yvonne Elliman is electrifying as Mary Magdalene, and Carl Anderson couldn't have been better as Judas; but Ted Neeley as Jesus is more whiny than heroic.

If it weren't for Lost Horizon, this would have gone down in history as the Worst Musical of 1973.

The music quickly becomes monotonous, and the operatic dialogue is silly right from the start.

Despite the 'impressive' desert locations and an array of tanks (to represent the ills of modern militarism), it's still staged like a student revue.
