9/10. Arrgh. If only I knew more about how to recognize cars! This movie is much beloved in our house. Bonus: What recently deceased TV/movie actor is the waiter in the restaurant scene?

Ah, I did not get specific enough, I see. Great lady, great scene, great thought. I actually meant the fancy restaurant when they were trying to get Mr. Fabulous to quit the maitre'd job to rejoin the band and they purposely act obnoxious. The waiter that waits on them in that scene is Paul Rubens aka Pee Wee Herman. :)

'The Blues Brothers remains one of the best-loved comedy movies of all time'

Actually when it was released it didn't do well, it's giant budget and drug riddled set
was the target of many writers, the director caught a lot of flack for the chaos and
the over the top car crashes which became repetitive and inane, frankly.
I saw it at the Rialto Theater in Westfield, NJ on opening day and there wasn't 20
people in the audience, 6 of them me and my crew. However we loved it, for all
the reasons people do now. It grew in popularity over the years, people forget
Belushi and Carrie Fisher both looked like they hadn't seen the sun in months,
they were coked out of their minds, and as it was 40 years ago it doesn't seem
so wrong to viewers now who know about their sad abuse of drugs.
I am mad at Belushi. He threw his life away for junk, depriving us both of his talent
and more great movies. Landis was a known enabler, his sets flush with whatever
drug anybody wanted, what a piece of crap.

Really obscure trivia (which I only know because Aykroyd and Belushi talked about it when they guested on the Dr Demento show): besides the theme from "Rawhide" and "Stand By Your Man", what song did the Blues Brothers play for the crowd at the Country Bunker, that was cut from the final film?

Hint: the original was recorded by Johnny Horton.

Right, other than the record company left the C out of "Bismarck" on the record jacket.
