THE BLUES BROTHERS (1980) ADVANCE POSTER, BRITISH


30 x 40 in. (76 x 102 cm)


This cult classic was directed by John Landis and written by Landis and Dan Akroyd. The film stars John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Cab Calloway. Jake Blues, played by Belushi has just been released from prison, and needs to raise money quickly for a tax bill owed by the Catholic home where he and his brother Elwood (Akyroyd) were raised. In order to do this, they put back together their blues band. The film has a fantastic and truly memorable soundtrack.


This rare advance poster is very striking as it uses only three colours to great effect and features the timeless tagline 'it's one hundred and six miles to go. We got a full tank o'gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark and we're wearing sunglasses!'. This rare advance poster does not surface very often.
