    The Blues Brothers (Universal, 1980). Prop Window Card (14" X 22").
    Of all the films to spin out of TV's legendary showcase, Saturday Night Live, perhaps none have been so successful as this, the story of two brothers, Jake and Elwood Blues (John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd) "on a mission from God." Born out of a 1976 sketch on SNL, the band took on a life of its own, soon releasing an album, Briefcase Full of Blues, that was destined to go double platinum. After several additional guest appearances on SNL, a movie was inevitable. Directed by John Landis, and featuring such musical legends as Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, and John Lee Hooker, the movie is about Jake and Elwood's quest to reassemble their band in order to raise money to save the orphanage in which they grew up. Offered here is an original prop window card produced for the film. These window cards can be seen in the sequence in which the Blues Brothers are promoting their upcoming concert, with many of them handed out by children. The card shows a lower right corner bend and some unobtrusive stains and foxing. Very Fine.
