This really goes into deep details of how Marvin lived and died. No need to buy the other dvd'S on his life because I purchased some of the others and none are more detailed then this one.

this was an play with no real charactors. I would read the papers and watch the news to see what happen on that sad day. Somebody just wanted to make a dollar off Marvins death. i already had a large collection on Marvin Gaye, but this play was a joke to classic Motown Artist. Don't waste your money. Save it and go see Frankie Beverly & Maze.

Marvin Gaye's murder must have influenced the filicidal scene in Spike Lee's "Jungle Fever." In film and reality, an elderly father shoots and kills his drug-addicted son in front of the son's mother.

I love James Cameron's "Titanic" because it allowed me to see what happened on that tragic ship ride without my having to be there (not that I could have been there when my grandfather wasn't even born yet). The "Final 24" series allows the same experience. I would say that Gaye's rise and fame were "before my time." However, when I think about how his music resonated with my parents and other African Americans of their age bracket, I realize what a tragedy his murder was to Black musical culture.

In every "Final 24" installment, I learn something about the subject that has nothing to do with their death. Here I learned that most of Gaye's greatest hits were predicted to be flops by Berry Gordy and others. To this day, or maybe even more so, the music industry, and its fans, is fickle. I salute Gaye for taking risks when he could have played it safe artistically.

This work said Gaye was once married to a woman at least a decade older than him and then he later married a 16 year-old. (Why he wasn't charged with statutory you-know-what I don't know.) Off the top of my head, this is the first time I've heard of a famous man who had May-December marriages in both directions. The work said "What's Going On?" was dedicated to or about Gaye's brother. Given the extreme family dysfunction in his life, I didn't know Gaye was close to his sibling.

The work interviews men and women, whites and Blacks. His sister and sister-in-law are interviewed, thus I imagine the family gave its permission for the documentary.

I had seen a clip of Marvin Gaye on youtube but it was too short and it didn't give much information about his background. I searched Amazon and saw Final 24: His Final Hours and thought this would be interesting so, I purchased it.
