YES....I love the Temptations Movie....and have watched that so numerous times I recognize it by heartHowever, I do want to collection some things directly hereOtis wrote the publication but go NOT have actually production regulate of the tv movieThe movie come out shortly after the fatality of MelvinMelvin (by all accounts) to be the sweetheart the he was shown to it is in in the movieHowever, the movie sort of neglected the truth he was a an excellent family man and dad,as well as being the best Bass singer ever and also Otis Williams best Buddy ForeverMelvin did no die in front of Otis and also his mother...Melvin DID destroy his health due to cortisone shots he maintained taking to lull the pains of the RA he to be inflicted with. He occurred diabetesand heart troubles from the cortisone shots *(and maybe did not recover totally from the time he to be shot by the automobile thief)However, the Tempts recorded their last track with Melvin "Blue" on the album "For Lover"s Only"...the last track Melvin sang on to be "Life is however a Dream"....and that was the last time Otis sang with him. Melvin took ill, lapsed into a coma and died 6 days later on in hospital, not in his mother"s kitchen.Another trouble in the movie is David Ruffin"s disastrous death....he admittedly was lugged to the hospital however the driver told castle "This is David Ruffin the the Temptations"....and then the driver/rat take it off...the hospital tried to conserve David but failed...however, that was not left in a morque unknown together the movie states...that is simply wrongI likewise feel the Paul Williams was provided an unfair treatment and also I will make a totality other post about thisOne thing that I have read : people who knew David Ruffin all praise the talent of Leon in his portrayal the the good singer!

I have seen this movie countless times, and have just discovered this blog today. Maybe someone deserve to answer mine question:At Melvin's funeral, the camera pans left indigenous Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, previous Otis, past Mama Rose and also another woman, climate lingers top top the next person - a man in a black leather hat.My guess is the he is someone of significance, because he remained in the front row, and the camera paused on him. Is that the "real" Otis Williams?

May 7, 2018 in ~ 12:05 AM Unknownsaid...

Me too due to the fact that movies are edited for television I intend some things need to be rescripted because that movie purposes and most movies space not going to be precise as the book. Check out the shade Purple and them clock it. So lot was left out and changed. It's simply the means it is....I quiet love the movie though.

July 4, 2018 in ~ 2:56 AM Unknownsaid...

The movie never ever said Blue died in his mother's kitchen, you view him walk in the kitchen and they referred to as for him, correct it jumped come the funeral however that is your assumption that he passed away in the kitchen. Just due to the fact that the movie didn't gain into a complete account that what occurred once he collapsed in the kitchen but one might think that they didn't just bury him and probably took him to the hospital. Civilization get too operated up off of celebrities lives. This to be from Otis's account not Blue's or David Ruffin's.

So unknown --do friend mean human being get so worked up prefer you're doing -- the movie step did lead united state to think he passed away in his mother's kitchen - as humans we take what proof is gift to us and we evaluate on that - kind of exactly how you are leading and directing us to believe you are just an additional arrogant hostile human being - lighten up !

I love the movie the only thing ns felt wasn't same they have to Paul Williams funeral,but didn't present Eddie Kendricks they just mentioned he had died. I love them every they didn't even mention that that left kids also that he to be a father and also David also.They might have listed more information on all of their life a small more. I hate once they do movies ~ above people's life and they leave out or add something that's not true if her writing about their life be truthful..

The truth that Otis the critical living member didn't have any type of rights or speak in his own life movie is therefore wrong and don't make since..y would ppl obtain together to write around ppl lives and make their movie and decide to no ask the member of his life what occurred in his life for this reason they have the right to make a an excellent movie around them..so weird they did the to the temptations.. But what's gud is everyone who's famous and wanted your story called made sure that didn't happen to them..the brand-new edition movie, TLC movie, hell several celebs made sure their movie didn't come out together a lie and also made certain they gained paid what they deserved for placing their life the end their for the world to see.
