Storyline

After their successful colaboration in 1968's "T.C.B." TV special, Diana Ross and The Supremes join The Temptations one more time. This time, the two super-groups not only sing but act in some innovative musical comedy sketches based on the greatest Broadway and Hollywood music and plots. It must be noted that although both the girls and the guys are great they don't come accross as exciting as when they perform their usual Motown stuff. Temptations are particularly boring in an overlong medley from "Fiddler in the Roof" but Miss Ross, who by this time was all that Motown cared about, is extremely effective in her "Leading Lady" medley.

Great Performances
12 May 2015 | by kevjfarrellSee all my reviews

This was a follow up TV special to the hugely successful TCB. This time, Diana/Supes & Temps went to the Broadway Stage to show an adult audience how well they can perform some of the great show tunes from some of the top Broadway shows of the era. They also showed off some acting talent as they performed mini-skits of some of the shows. In reality, this was really just a show put together to cash in on the success of TCB. But that's not to say it doesn't have any credit of its own. Again great performances by both acts and superb stage outfits. These groups were the coolest/classiest on the scene at that time. Well worth watching - but you ain't gonna hear any of their big hits!!!
