Meeting Jake and Elwood
My personal experience in the making of the Blues Brothers movie


These shots were taken by my mother and neighbor on our street.  The prints are of low quality but still worthy of a look.  The crew pictured below, including John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, were on site most of the day  but everything ended up on the cutting room floor. 

That' short kid in the blue jacket in the middle left picture is me.  The original Bluesmobile sat in front of my tan bungalow for most of the day.  We even collected John Belushi's cigarette butts and saved them for years, eventually throwing them out. We also watched them film the bridge jump when a crew member told us when and where they were planning on it.
