Standees are made to boost the film's marketing, as they have real impact in cinema foyers.

Owing to the size and fragility of standees they were hard to store, and most were discarded.

This cult classic was directed by John Landis and written by Landis and Dan Aykroyd. The film stars John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Cab Calloway. Jake Blues (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 (Aykroyd) were raised. In order to do this, they put back together their blues band. The film has a fantastic, truly memorable soundtrack.
