The Making of "The Blues Brothers"

Unread postby danwismar » Wed Jan 09, 2013 2:04 pm

Don't know how many Blues Brothers fans we've got around here, but my son (age 34) is one of the biggest, and he just sent me a link to this new Vanity Fair article about how the movie got made...a success despite being overdue, over-budget, and complicated by Belushi's general craziness and fierce appetite for cocaine and other drugs. Great story...

This is a solid list.
