    No disrespect intended. Do you have one?

    Mine is Jesus Christ Superstar (1973, specifically)

    The music, the message, the mood, it was a little 70's cheesy, but...

    I'm willing to spend a little of my street creds on this recommended few minutes.

    YouTube

    (sorry about the short ad)

    The black dude being a prescient Judas,

    And especially, if nothing else,

    YouTube&feature=related

    "He is dangerous."

    Jesus Christ Superstar was considered sacrilegious and mocking by many Christians at that time. It was not accurate with the gospels, but I did enjoy some of the music like you. My favorite was "I Don't Know How to Love Him."

    "King of Kings". Jeffrey Hunter is marvelous as Jesus.

    "The Last Temptation of Christ" is an interesting take on the "Jesus story".

    I found "Jesus Christ Superstar" unwatchable.

    People do have strong reactions one way or the other about the 1973 production if you are talking about the movie. It is definitely dated in style. But it feels to me like it tells the real story about how Jesus threatened to upset the delicate balance of power between the Romans and the Jewish hierarchy, and what it could have been like to be Jesus and Judas.

    My penny's worth is that it worked very well on the stage [I saw it in London in about '74] but I did not like the film version.

    Yes, I was referring to the 1973 movie. I found it more than a "little 70's cheesy": unwatchably so. So much so, that I literally had to turn it off.

    Are there 70s adapted-for-TV musicals that you like? Or is it a genre/era problem?

    There are musicals that I do like. However, in general I can't help but see the 70's as a lost decade not only for film, but for music as well.
