Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of THE BLUES BROTHERS Movie!
The third in my series of THE BLUES BROTHERS
movie location caches.
The cache is located near the Music Court bridge in Jackson Park. In The Blues Brothers movie, the bridge played host to a Nazi rally orchestrated by the Head Nazi (Henry Gibson) and Gruppenfeuhrer (Eugene J. Anthony). While waiting to drive across in their Bluesmobile, Jake and Elwood Blues (John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) ask a passing Chicago police officer about the delay and learn of the rally. Jake exclaims the famous line and an angry Elwood steps on the gas, maneuvering around the other cars, and drives up and over the bridge — which unceremoniously forces the buffoonish Nazis to leap off into the lagoon below — much to the delight of the angry crowd and the audience.
If you're inclined, please take a photo of yourself on the bridge (please don't jump into the lagoon) and post it here.
And while you're there, don't forget to check out some of the other nearby caches:
