The Blues Brothers

The Blues Brothers

This cult-classic tale of comedic redemption definitely shows the grittier side of the Windy City. There are iconic shots of the neo-Nazi parade at Jackson Park, musical numbers by Ray Charles, James Brown, and Aretha Franklin on the south side of Chicago and, of course, the storming of City Hall.
