Teddy Pendergrass | His Only Feature Film Appearance (1982)
Teddy Pendergrass was on the verge of superstardom when on March 18, 1982 a car accident left him a quadriplegic for the rest of his life. On April 30, 1982, SOUP FOR ONE starring Saul Rubinek as a young filmmaker attempting to navigate New York's singles scene was released quietly in theaters. Filmmaker Jonathan Kaufer, at 24, was the youngest filmmaker ever hired to direct by a major Hollywood studio. Bernard Edwards and Nile Rogers of Chic assembled an eclectic soundtrack that included Pendergrass, who is seen performing "Dream Girl" in an early scene. Following the clip, is the full audio of the song, which has only been included on CHIC compilations and the soundtrack, which is currently in print. The film was released on VHS in the 1980s but has yet to make an appearance on DVD or VOD.
