‘The Blues Brothers’ is a 1980 American musical crime comedy film directed by John Landis, featuring musical appearances by R&B, soul, jazz and blues singers James Brown, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and John Lee Hooker.
Blues brothers Jake and Elwood (John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) have sold their souls to rhythm'n'blues, but still lend a hand when the church orphanage in which they were raised is threatened with closure. Resolving to get their old band together and stage a fund-raising gig, the brothers have God on their side but everyone else against them.
