His final draft was pages, which was three times longer than a standard screenplay, written not in a standard screenplay format , but more like free verse.
The film held the record for Most Cars Destroyed in the course of production for 18 years, at , one less than was wrecked in The Blues Brothers Both were surpassed by G.
Joe: The Rise of Cobra in with cars destroyed. This caused friction between Landis and Universal later in the production, as its costs far exceeded the original budget.
Since none of them except Charles had had any hits in recent years, the studio wanted the director to replace them with — or add performances by — younger acts, such as Rose Royce , whose " Car Wash " had made them disco stars after its use in the film of that name.
The members of The Blues Brothers Band were themselves notable. Matt Murphy is a veteran blues guitarist. As the band developed at Saturday Night Live , pianist Paul Shaffer was part of the act and was cast in the film.
However, due to contractual obligations with SNL , he was unable to participate, so actor-musician Murphy Dunne whose father, George Dunne , was the Cook County Board President was hired to take his role.
Fisher, Freeman, Gibson, and Candy were cast in non-musical supporting roles. The film is also notable for the number of cameo appearances by established celebrities and entertainment-industry figures, including Steve Lawrence as a booking agent, Twiggy as a "chic lady" in a Jaguar convertible whom Elwood propositions at a gas station, Steven Spielberg as the Cook County Assessor's clerk, John Landis as a state trooper in the mall chase, Paul Reubens before Pee-wee Herman as a waiter in the Chez Paul restaurant scene, Joe Walsh in a cameo as the first prisoner to jump up on a table in the final scene, and Chaka Khan as the soloist in the Triple Rock choir.
Muppet performer Frank Oz plays a corrections officer , and in the scene where the brothers crash into Toys R Us , a Grover and Kermit the Frog toy can be spotted and a customer played by stunt coordinator Gary McLarty asks the cashier if they have a Miss Piggy doll, a Muppet character that is voiced by Oz.
Over extras were used for the next-to-last scene, the blockade of the building at Daley Center , including National Guardsmen, state and city police officers, with 15 horses for the mounted police and three each Sherman tanks , helicopters , and fire engines.
Principal photography began in July , with the film's budget still not settled. For the first month, things ran smoothly on and off the set.
In the next month, the production began falling behind schedule. Much of the delay was due to Belushi's partying and carousing. People often recognized him and slipped him cocaine, a drug he was already using heavily on his own, hoping to use it with him.
As a result of his late nights and drug and alcohol use, Belushi would often miss unit calls the beginning of a production day or go to his trailer after them and sleep, wasting hours of production time.
One night, Aykroyd found him crashing on the sofa of a nearby house, where Belushi had already helped himself to food in the refrigerator.
Cocaine was already so prevalent on the set like many other film productions of that era that Aykroyd, who used far less than his partner, claims a section of the budget was actually set aside for purchases of the drug during night shooting.
The stars had a private bar, the Blues Club, built on the set, for themselves, crew, and friends. Carrie Fisher, Aykroyd's girlfriend at the time, said most of the bar's staff doubled as dealers, procuring any drug patrons desired.
The original budget was quickly surpassed, and back in Los Angeles, Wasserman grew increasingly frustrated. He was regularly confronting Ned Tanen , the executive in charge of production for Universal, in person over the costs.
Sean Daniel , another studio executive, was not reassured when he came to Chicago and saw the production had set up a special facility for the 70 cars used in the chase sequences.
Filming there, which was supposed to have concluded in the middle of September, continued into late October. On the set, Belushi's drug use worsened.
Fisher, who herself later struggled with cocaine addiction, said Landis told her to keep Belushi away from the drug. Wendell was hired to clear any from the places Belushi visited off-camera.
Nevertheless, at one point, Landis found Belushi with what he described as a "mountain" of cocaine on a table in his trailer, which led to a tearful confrontation in which Belushi admitted his addiction and feared it could eventually kill him.
After Belushi's wife Judy and Aykroyd had a talk with Belushi about his antics, the production returned to Los Angeles.
Filming there again ran smoothly, until it came time to shoot the final sequence at the Hollywood Palladium. Just beforehand, Belushi fell off a borrowed skateboard and seriously injured his knee, making it unlikely he could go through with the scene, which required him to sing, dance, and do cartwheels.
Wasserman persuaded the city's top orthopedic surgeon to postpone his weekend plans long enough to stop by and sufficiently anesthetize Belushi's knee, and the scene was filmed as intended.
Much of the film was shot on location in and around Chicago between July and October , including Joliet Correctional Center in nearby Joliet, Illinois , and Wauconda, Illinois , where the car crashes into the side of Route Byrne , it is credited for putting Chicago on the map as a venue for filmmaking.
The first traffic stop was in Park Ridge, Illinois. The shopping mall car chase was filmed in the real, albeit shuttered, Dixie Square Mall , in Harvey, Illinois.
The main entrance to Wrigley Field and its sign reading "Save lives. Drive safely, prevent fires. Elwood's Illinois driver's license number is an almost-valid encoded number, with Aykroyd's own birth date embedded.
Jake's final confrontation with his girlfriend was filmed in a replica of a section of the abandoned Chicago freight tunnel system.
Daley Center. In the final car chase scene, the production actually dropped a Ford Pinto , representing the one driven by the "Illinois Nazis", from a helicopter at an altitude of about 1, feet—and had to gain a Special Airworthiness Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration to do it.
The Lake Freeway North was a planned but not completed six-lane freeway, and I contained an unfinished ramp off which the Nazis drove.
Bank Center. The Palace Hotel Ballroom, where the band performs its climactic concert, was at the time of filming a country club, but later became the South Shore Cultural Center , named after the Chicago neighborhood where it is located.
The interior concert scenes were filmed in the Hollywood Palladium. The filming in downtown Chicago was conducted on Sundays during the summer of , and much of the downtown was cordoned off from the public.
The film used 13 different cars bought at auction from the California Highway Patrol to depict the retired Mount Prospect, Illinois Dodge Monaco patrol car.
The vehicles were outfitted by the studio to do particular driving chores; some were customized for speed and others for jumps, depending on the scene.
For the scene when the Blues Brothers finally arrive at the Richard J. Daley Center, a mechanic took several months to rig the car to fall apart.
Landis' difficulties continued even after principal photography was completed. The first cut of the film lasted two and a half hours, with an intermission.
After one early screening, Wasserman demanded it be shortened, and 20 minutes were cut. Prospects for a successful release did not look good.
Aykroyd and Belushi had left SNL at the end of the previous season , reducing their bankability.
Belushi's fame had taken a further hit after the commercial and critical failure of at the end of the year.
One day after the editing was done, Wasserman invited Landis up to his office to speak with Ted Mann , head of the Mann Theatres chain, which dominated film exhibition in the Western United States.
He told Landis that he would not book the film at any theaters in predominantly white neighborhoods, such as Westwood.
Not only did Mann not want black patrons going there to see the film,  he surmised that white viewers were unlikely to see a film featuring older black musical stars.
Ultimately The Blues Brothers got less than half the bookings nationwide for its initial release than a typical big-budget studio film of the era, which did not bode well for its success at the box office.
The Blues Brothers opened on June 20, , with a release in theaters. Over the years, it has retained a following through television and home video.
The Blues Brothers received mostly positive reviews from critics. The site's critical consensus reads, "Too over the top for its own good, but ultimately rescued by the cast's charm, director John Landis' grace, and several soul-stirring musical numbers.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film three out of four stars, praising it for its energetic musical numbers and "incredible" car chases.
Ebert further noted "Belushi and Aykroyd come over as hard-boiled city guys, total cynics with a world-view of sublime simplicity, and that all fits perfectly with the movie's other parts.
There's even room, in the midst of the carnage and mayhem, for a surprising amount of grace, humor, and whimsy.
She also took director Landis to task for "distracting editing", mentioning the Soul Food diner scene in which saxophonist Lou Marini's head is out of shot as he dances on the counter.
Kim Newman, writing for Empire in , considered The Blues Brothers to be "an amalgam of urban sleaze, automobile crunch and blackheart rhythm and blues" with "better music than any film had had for many years".
On the 30th anniversary, L'Osservatore Romano ,  the daily newspaper of Vatican City State , wrote that the film is filled with positive symbolism and moral references that can be related to Catholicism.
They went further, stating, The Blues Brothers "is a memorable film, and, judging by the facts, a Catholic one. The Blues Brothers has become a staple of late-night cinema, even slowly morphing into an audience-participation show in its regular screenings at the Valhalla Cinema , in Melbourne , Australia.
The fans act as the members of the crowd during the performance of " Ghost Riders in the Sky ". It featured a press conference, a panel discussion where Dan Aykroyd joined by satellite, and a screening of the original theatrical version of the film.
The panel discussion was broadcast direct to many other cinemas around the country. The popularity of the film has also spread overseas. The film was an inspiration for Japanese companies Studio Hibari and Aniplex , which led to the creation of the manga and anime franchise Nerima Daikon Brothers , which contain heavy references to the film.
When the film was first screened for a preview audience, a producer demanded that director Landis cut 25 minutes from the film.
Weiss, editor George Folsey Jr. It also included production photographs, the theatrical trailer, production notes, and cast and filmmaker bios.
The 25th-anniversary DVD release in included both the theatrical cut and the extended version. The film was released on Blu-ray on July 26, , with the same basic contents as the 25th-anniversary DVD.
In a March interview with Ain't it Cool News , Landis also mentioned he had approved the Blu-ray's remastered transfer.
On May 19, , the movie was given a 4K UHD release, it has a new 4K remaster from the original negative and the extended footage was remastered from the same archived print as well.
Later that year they released a second live album, Made in America , which featured the Top 40 track, "Who's Making Love".
A number of regular Blues Brothers' members, including saxophonist Tom Scott and drummer Steve Jordan , perform on the soundtrack album, but are not in the film.
According to Landis in the documentary The Stories Behind the Making of 'The Blues Brothers ' , filmed musical performances by Franklin and Brown took more effort, as neither artist was accustomed to lip-synching their performances on film.
Franklin required several takes, and Brown simply rerecorded his performance live. Cab Calloway initially wanted to do a disco variation on his signature tune, "Minnie the Moocher", having done the song in several styles in the past, but Landis insisted that the song be done faithful to the original big-band version.
Bevor die Szene gedreht wurde, in der John Belushi die Sonnenbrille abnimmt, durfte er auf Anweisung des Produzenten sechs Tage lang weder rauchen noch Alkohol zu sich oder Drogen einnehmen, damit ihm keine Suchtanzeichen anzusehen sind.
Belushi soll dies trotz seiner Sucht eingehalten haben. Es stellte sich rasch heraus, dass Brown ein Lied nicht zweimal auf die gleiche Art singen konnte, und Hooker bestand auf einer Live-Aufnahme.
Zum Beispiel erfährt man hier, warum das Bluesmobile magische Kräfte besitzt es parkt nachts in einem Transformatorraum — diese Erklärung fehlt in der Kinofassung.
Zudem sieht man Elwood bei seiner Arbeit in einer Fabrik, die Industriekleber in Sprühdosen herstellt. In der Kinofassung haben beide Blues Brothers die Sonnenbrillen immer auf.

Commons Wikiquote. Deutscher Titel. I couldn't believe my eyes that this film is not on the top , well, John Landis doesn't get enough credit in all.
He brings us The Blues Brothers, two popular characters off of Saturday Night Live who were at the height of their popularity.
John puts them in Chicago this is the best Chicago movie to watch next to Ferris Bueller by the way and makes this into one of the greatest comedies ever.
The great thing about this film is it's not gross out, it's not the obvious silly humor, it's just humor that keeps you laughing every minute.
Dan and John are such a great comedic duo, they are without a doubt the most memorable duo off of SNL I would say.
Jake and Elwood go to the orphanage where they were raised and learn that it is being shut down due to insufficient funds, so they want to reunite their band and put on a show to help save the place.
On a mission from God they claim, they gather up their old band members to put on the show of the decade! But along the way, Jake and Elwood get into quite a bit of trouble with the police, the Illinois Nazi party, a girlfriend of one of their band members, and a girl who just seems to keep going after them and wants them dead.
With great and endless cameos from great people like Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles, terrific Chicago landmarks, endless hilarious jokes, The Blues Brothers is the perfect comedy that is one of the best movies of all time.
The concert scene is unforgettable and the scene that will always get me down on the floor in tears is where they go to the restaurant, John's line of "How much for your women?!

After the demolition derby in the shopping mall Elwood parks the Bluesmobile in a hiding place beside an electrical power box. John Landis explains that Aykroyd thought this would show how the car gets its incredible endurance, but also goes on to explain that it never did make any sense, so the scene was cut.
A few extra lines of dialog when Elwood and Jake rest in his apartment. When the cops come to arrest Jake and Elwood in the motel, they first stop at the registration desk and intimidate the manager.
They also greet Sam, who seems to be known by everyone. An entire sequence with Elwood boosting chemicals from his day job, then quitting the job to become a priest, is restored.
Jake has an extra line of dialog while pep-talking Murph and the Magictones at the Holiday Inn "Now, who here at this table can honestly say that they played any finer or felt any better than they did when they played with the Blues Brothers?
Jake and Elwood watch for a moment then enter the Soul Food Cafe. The original Picwood preview included another musical number, "Sink the Bismark", but that footage has been lost.
More lines of dialog for Maury Sline in the steam room scene, mostly regarding to the old gigs having been turned into gay discos.
Mit ihrer eigenwilligen Art gelingt es den Brüdern, alle wieder zusammenzuführen. Curtis springt für sie mit der Nummer Minnie the Moocher ein, dann betreten sie mit erheblicher Verspätung die Bühne, bringen aber die Menge rasch zum Toben.
Weil mittlerweile sowohl die Polizei als auch ihr Bewährungshelfer Mercer und der Countrykneipenbesitzer mit seinen Freunden bedrohlich aufgetaucht sind, machen sich die Blues Brothers nach zwei Liedern mit dem Geld, das ihnen ein begeisterter Plattenproduzent hinter der Bühne als Vorschuss gibt, wieder aus dem Staub.
Auf der Fahrt nach Chicago verwickeln sie die Mehrzahl der sie verfolgenden Fahrzeuge der Polizei in Massenunfälle und aktivieren so neben Feuerwehr und Polizei auch Armee und Nationalgarde.
Nachdem sie sich im Gebäude der Steuerverwaltung durch mehrere Barrikaden etwas Zeit verschafft haben, schaffen sie es gerade noch, beim zuständigen Finanzbeamten die Steuerschuld bar zu bezahlen, bevor sie verhaftet werden.
Die Schlusssequenz zeigt die gesamte Band im Gefängnis bei einem Auftritt vor den Mitgefangenen; man stimmt dort den Jailhouse Rock an.
Das Buch endet mit der Verhaftung von Jake Blues. Der Plattenvertrag, den die Blues Brothers unterschrieben hatten, sah allerdings auch einen Film vor.
Deshalb machte sich Aykroyd daran, ein Drehbuch zu schreiben, das statt der üblichen bis am Ende Seiten umfasste. Um dies zu unterstreichen, band er es in einen Telefonbuchumschlag des Branchenbuchs von San Fernando Valley ein.
Im Film wird oft der Name von Richard J. Daley , des früheren Bürgermeisters von Chicago, genannt. Dies ist darauf zurückzuführen, dass er in der Stadt ein Verbot für Dreharbeiten erlassen hatte.
Die nötigen Genehmigungen wurden dann in der Amtszeit von Jane Byrne allesamt erteilt. Sieben davon wurden während der Dreharbeiten zerstört.
Er spielt einen der beiden Polizisten im zweiten Streifenwagen, der am Schluss der Szene auf dem Autodach landet.
Diese Demonstration wird im Film persifliert.
