    Great find!

    Is it just me, or are Mary, Cindy, and Jean in three different versions of the same dress? Mary's looks long, while Jean's is short. The belts look similar; similar to the print that's at the bottom of Cindy's dress. Perhaps just "street clothes", but very well coordinated.

    Can't really tell from this photo. It looks like Jean and Mary might be wearing the same belt, which might match Cindy's skirt.

    wonder what they're rehearsing. that's not the set that was used for the brief duet they sang of Groovin & People Got To Be Free. unless they're in a rehearsal hall of some sort. but even that, looks like Jean is walking around and M and C are dancing.

    Was Andy on the Pearl Bailey special with them? i know they did River Deep and The Border Song. perhaps there was another production number on the show

    regardless it's a sensational picture!!

    Andy Williams hosted the "Festival of Ford's" special that aired on Thanksgiving, 1970. The Supremes were guests, along with Pearl Bailey, Dionne, Bobby Gentry, Burl Ives, Henry Mancini, among others.

    oh i had that confused with the Pearl Bailey special they were on. there's a pic in Supreme Faith of the Sups, Jimmy Steward, Pearl, Bobbie Gentry and a few others. i assumed that was the show they did River and Border.

    What did they sing on Festival?

    And yes it looks like they're at least in coordinated personal outfits. mary in blackldark button down top with pants and the belt to match the group pattern. Cindy in a dark crew neck top with the pattern in her skirt, along with a black/dark belt. and Jean in a black/dark top and skirt or mini dress, with the belt to match the group pattern

    I have never seen this and I know I saw the special. Did anyone see this clip? Maybe my phone rang or something. Thanks for the newspaper clips - I love seeing these rare pics as it reminds me of their wonderful sound.
