Today, Trailers From Hell kicks off its Bands on the Run! week with Allan Arkush diving into the trailer for Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous."

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.
