In ‘Dreamgirls,’ cast isn’t to blame
MY comments in Chris Lee’s Fast Tracks column [“Smokey Puts Film Under Fire,” Feb. 4] made it sound as though I have particular issues with the cast of the movie “Dreamgirls.” In particular Beyonce Knowles, Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx. I don’t. I love and admire all of them. They are some of our brightest young stars. My prayer for them is that they continue to shine and reach orbital heights. I consider them to be my friends. I am very proud of what they have accomplished and wish them only continued success.
My issues have always only been with the creators and the makers of this film. Motown is an institution all Americans can be proud of and to see it distorted by someone who wasn’t even there and who had nothing to do with it disturbs me.
