“It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses”

One of the few films that truly deserves to be called a ‘classic’. John Landis’ 1980 action comedy rollercoaster “The Blues Brothers”.  Over the years this movie has built up a huge cult following and established itself as the benchmark for which other action comedy films are compared against; it’s not many that come close. Any paper from the original release is extremely scarce and very desirable, but this is an incredibly scarce Advance Teaser UK quad design and these very rarely come up for sale. The original UK quad film poster offered here features Elwood’s (Dan Aykroyd) classic line “It’s one hundred and six miles to go, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses” offset against bold blue background with black caricatures of both Blues Brothers – Jake (John Belushi) & Elwood (Dan Aykroyd). Originally folded (as issued) it displays very well and is a fine example of very rare original and collectable movie memorabilia for the screens best loved anarchic action musical comedy that is “The Blues Brothers”

Trivia: According to Dan Aykroyd, cocaine was included in the film’s budget, to help the cast and crew stay awake during night shoots. According to Aykroyd, John Belushi enjoyed it the most, and felt that it enhanced his performance.
