In the movie, Otis is shown in Al Bryant's milk truck "making out" with his girlfriend Josephine, when, over the radio - the DJ summons Otis's group "Otis Williams and the Distants" to the studio. However, according to Otis Williams himself, in his autobiography "The Temptations" - Otis was doing a much more mundane activity when he heard the DJ summon his singing group over the radio airwaves. Otis was actually washing dishes - not making out with his girlfriend. See more »
This movie was great.I love entertainment history,and this was full of history,and the music was fantastic.My Girl,Ain't Too Proud To Beg,Cloud 9,Just My Imagination,Pshyadelic Shack,Can't Get Next To You!!!And "THE VOICES"-David Ruffin,Eddie Kendricks,& Dennis Edwards were amazing.David Ruffin did a lot to dispell the notion that you can't wear glasses and be hip & cool-because he was as hip & as cool they came.I loved the reunion tour scenes when David,Eddie,& Dennis shared the stage-the harmony was great.
