The Blues Brothers– Behind the Scenes:

The Blues Brothers brought tanks, jeeps, squad cards, helicopters and paddy wagons to the plaza for a final scene of epic proportion.

The filming of The Blues Brothers gave hundreds of Chicagoans jobs, both on and off camera.

At the time of release, this film held the world record for the number of cars crashed. To this day, this movie holds the Daley Center record for most windows broken.
