In the episode, the three nuns travel to the home of one of the sisters and, in true Supremes fashion, sing a religious hymn together. An article from Jet Magazine in 1968 reports, “During the filming, which took place at Los Estacos, Mexico, Berry Gordy Jr., president and founder of Motown Records Corporation in Detroit, was on location and assisted the program’s regular director in working out scenes with the three young women.”

The piece also reveals that the Supremes did all their own stunts – including a scene where “the daring young trio did [an underwater rescue scene] all by themselves.” With the recent death of Supremes member Mary Wilson, we remember this iconic trio with even more iconic talent.
