Despite generally rapturous reviews, Cameron Crowe’s engaging semi-autographical chronicle of a teenage writer touring with rock bands for Rolling Stone struggled at the box office, but has since emerged as a cult classic with a devoted following. An alternate dvd version, Almost Famous: Untitled, consists of the theatrical release combined with 40 minutes of deleted scenes.
