YES....I love the Temptations Movie....and have watched that so numerous times I understand it by heartHowever, I carry out want to collection some things straight hereOtis composed the publication but did NOT have actually production control of the tv movieThe movie come out soon after the death of MelvinMelvin (by every accounts) was the sweetheart the he was presented to be in the movieHowever, the movie type of neglected the truth he was a good family man and also dad,as well as being the finest Bass singer ever and Otis Williams finest Buddy ForeverMelvin did not die in prior of Otis and his mother...Melvin DID ruin his health as result of cortisone shots he preserved taking to ease the pain of the RA he was inflicted with. He emerged diabetesand heart difficulties from the cortisone shots *(and perhaps did not recover fully from the time he was shot through the car thief)However, the Tempts recorded their last song with Melvin "Blue" top top the album "For Lover"s Only"...the last track Melvin sang on was "Life is however a Dream"....and that was the critical time Otis sang v him. Melvin take it ill, lapsed into a coma and died 6 days later on in hospital, not in his mother"s kitchen.Another difficulty in the movie is David Ruffin"s catastrophic death....he admittedly was lugged to the hospital however the driver told castle "This is David Ruffin that the Temptations"....and then the driver/rat took off...the hospital do the efforts to conserve David yet failed...however, that was no left in a morque unknown as the movie states...that is simply wrongI additionally feel that Paul Williams was provided an unfair treatment and I will certainly make a entirety other post around thisOne point that I have actually read : people who knew David Ruffin all praise the talent of Leon in his portrayal that the an excellent singer!

I have seen this movie many times, and have just discovered this blog today. Possibly someone can answer mine question:At Melvin's funeral, the camera pans left indigenous Smokey Robinson and also Berry Gordy, previous Otis, past Mama Rose and also another woman, climate lingers top top the next person - a male in a black color leather hat.My assumption: v is the he is who of significance, because he remained in the former row, and the camera paused ~ above him. Is he the "real" Otis Williams?

May 7, 2018 at 12:05 AM Unknownsaid...

Me too due to the fact that movies space edited for tv I intend some things need to be rescripted because that movie purposes and most movies room not going to be exact as the book. Check out the shade Purple and them watch it. So much was left out and changed. It's simply the means it is....I tho love the movie though.

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

The movie never said Blue passed away in his mother's kitchen, you check out him walk in the kitchen and also they dubbed for him, correctly it jumped to the funeral yet that is your assumption that he passed away in the kitchen. Just due to the fact that the movie didn't get into a complete account that what taken place once he broke down in the kitchen however one might think that castle didn't simply bury him and probably take it him come the hospital. Human being get too functioned up turn off of celebrities lives. This was from Otis's account no Blue's or David Ruffin's.

July 28, 2018 in ~ 12:10 PM Unknownsaid...

So unknown --do you mean people get so functioned up favor you're law -- the movie step did lead us to think he passed away in his mother's kitchen - as humans we take it what proof is presented to us and we advice on that - kind of exactly how you room leading and also directing united state to believe you space just one more arrogant hostile human - lighten up !

The truth that Otis the last living member didn't have any rights or speak in his very own life movie is for this reason wrong and don't make since..y would certainly ppl gain together come write about ppl lives and also make their movie and decide to not ask the member the his life what occurred in his life therefore they have the right to make a an excellent movie about them..so monster they did that to the temptations.. However what's gud is everyone who's famous and wanted your story called made sure that didn't occur to them..the new edition movie, TLC movie, hell many celebs made sure their movie didn't come out as a lie and also made sure they got paid what lock deserved for placing their life out their because that the human being to see.
