BETTER TITLE: “TROUBLE MAN”

A feature film is in the works (currently in production) about the life and music of Marvin Gaye entitled “Sexual Healing” after one of Gaye’s most memorable songs. A far better title would be “Trouble Man” from another of his songs — the current title encourages confusion on a first impression level and clouds the film’s content unnecessarily for the primary reason that familiarity with Gaye’s music is less pronounced today than among generations past and few will immediately associate that title with Gaye’s work.
