"The Blues Brothers" co-starred Aretha Franklin back in 1980



I vaguely remember seeing “The Blues Brothers” while living in Dallas in 1980. At the time, the John Landis film (with Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as the Brothers who try to get their old Catholic boarding school saved, was said to be one of the most expensive films ever made (for Universal).


Arehta Franklin, who passed away today at age 76 from pancreatic cancer, played Mrs. Murphy.


I do remember the final chase scene, with its geographical inaccuracies.
