I was watching the new release of Picket fences and there is a plot line involving the “Contrition Sisters” a one hit wonder group from the sixties. They are shown performing only one song “Beechwood 4-5789” which was a hit single for the real-life Marvelettes. The implicat ion is that this was their big hit. It later turns out that both sisters engage in prostitution.
Are they libeling the Marvelettes with this line (assuming that there has been no compensation to ok it?) Has any other tort been committed?
